The Music Publishers Association is a group of more than 150 music publishing companies, with members from major labels to independent publishers.
These publishers are also the main actors in licensing and distributing music to consumers.
The list includes the top 200 publishing companies in terms of revenue, revenues from licensing, revenues per album, revenue per album in digital downloads, revenue from licensing and digital distribution and revenue from music publishing and marketing.
Here’s a look at what the list includes:In 2018, music publishers earned an estimated $8 billion in revenue, according to The Associated Press, a much smaller number than in previous years, when the industry accounted for $11.6 billion.
The revenue was up $3 billion from 2017, and music publishers are not the only ones with big profits.
Spotify, Spotify Music, Apple Music, Rdio, Pandora and others made millions in 2018.
(Reuters)The music industry is growing, but its revenues have remained stagnant for years.
In 2018, the industry’s revenue was $9.4 billion, down 3 percent from 2017.
The industry is getting older, and its members are older.
The number of music publishers in the U.S. is projected to grow to 4.3 million by 2025, up from 3.5 million in 2020.
The biggest increase in the number of publishers is in the music industry’s core business, including streaming and downloads, and this includes publishers such as Apple Music and Spotify. (AP)
