BPI report boost in recorded music sales

News: 19th February 2014 by Louise Dodgson under Finance, Law & Music Business, Record Labels

The BPI, trade body representing the UK recorded music industry, has some good news to share in terms of recorded music sales which have grown in the first quarter of 2013. Combined CD and digital sales have risen by 1.4% in this time, and unit album sales have enjoyed a growth spurt of which we haven't seen the likes of since 2009! 

Digital album sales have also shown strong growth rising to 19.5% or £160.5 million. Unfortunately, single sales have dipped by 4.4% but we're sure that overall there'll be plenty of cause for celebration at tonight's BRIT Awards for the industry big-wigs.
