Music and Video Purchasing - UK - August 2011
The category of the market covered in this report is: pre-recorded music and video content, both in physical format (including CDs, standard DVDs, music DVDs, Blu-ray discs and UMDs) and as digital content.
- Streaming services such as Spotify or Napster – which function on a subscription model for unlimited music – have been excluded from market size considerations, but are addressed in consumer trends.
- Digital content can be obtained through download sites (such as iTunes) in the form of digitally compressed files that can be played on a computer or transferred to other devices – depending on restrictions placed on the file by the original content providers.
- Mintel acknowledges the illegal download problem facing the film and music industry in this report. However, market sizes and estimations apply to the legal download markets only.
Care should be taken to differentiate between ‘online’ and ‘digital’ within this report. Purchasing music or video online refers to ordering a physical copy of the media through a web outlet – purchasing music or video digitally refers to the purchase of digital music or video files.
