Music downloads in Germany on the rise

Who could have imagined at the time of the original Napster, times that we really are a nation of downloaders who pay regularly for their tracks? The national sport to the illegal downloading of MP3s constituted times, seemingly dies slowly in this country.

“Blame” for this many platforms on which we can stream music, but also the usual MP3 deals. Germany could produce an increase of 27.6 percent over the previous year here – the equivalent of 73.3 million down loaded tracks alone in our country. Thus, it makes Germany Europe seen on the winner’s podium comfortable – only Britain can boast with 173.8 million downloads more than us and behind us then follows with proper spacing France.

In terms of growth we were a little ahead of Spain, but there seems to be lagging behind a little in terms of absolute numbers – only 8.5 million downloads is listed there. Interesting is also the way that the figures put anywhere in Europe except in Scandinavia with Denmark and Norway there are two nations in the north, where music is downloaded less than last year.

Why is that exactly and why general rule so vast differences within Europe in terms of growth or absolute numbers, I can not tell you, unfortunately. Perhaps this is also related to the available streaming services, but perhaps also with other simple listening habits. Final question: What are you listening to mainly because your music? Streams in their Spotify and co? Do you use an online service such as iTunes, Amazon, Google Music and co? Or her continues to work for the good old vinyl to CD or even?
