Recent research published by the government's Intellectual Property Office shows that there has been a 10% increase in UK music consumers through legal services since 2013.

A further breakdown of stats from the IPO suggests that 15.6 million UK internet users access music online, made up of 12 million streaming and 10.5 million downloading. Get to grips with more figures via the links below...
