Digital Music Downloads Show Sharpest Sales Decline Ever, As Streaming And Stream-Ripping Grow

The numbers are in, and it certainly doesn’t look good for sales of digital music downloads. The data for the first half of 2016 shows total digital download sales stalled at 404.3 million, as opposed to 531.6 million for the first half of 2015. That’s a decline year on year of a whopping 23.9 percent. – James Geddes, Tech Times
