Deloitte/IFPI data on the Italian music market, as already happened in 2020, also show that revenues from subscriptions to streaming platforms have driven the sector: the premium segment grew by 35.6%. Strong impact also in the video streaming area supported by advertising with a + 46.3%. Overall, the entire segment between audio and video streaming grew by 24.6% to 208 million euros in revenues. In the audio segment alone, Italian consumers make an average of over a billion streams every week.
And in an increasingly streaming-friendly world, even record companies must change their perspective, as explained by Paola Cillo, associate professor of corporate economies, who discussed Digital Disruption in Creative Industries: Evidence from Music and Fashion. "The disruption generated in the market by music streaming has led to a change of strategy and a need for innovation on the part of the majors, which must rethink not only distribution, but also the product itself, in accordance with digital fruition."
Not only that, new technologies "have increased the possibilities of creative partnerships, which is not often emphasized," added Andrea Ordanini, BNP Paribas Chair in Marketing and Service Analytics. "Technology has facilitated and multiplied featuring and digital participations in songs, an aspect that the artists themselves care more and more about."
