The music market in Poland is doing very well. Once again in a row, we have very good data in almost every segment of the recording market.

Black plates accounted for over 40 percent. revenue from the sale of physical media and less than 10 percent total music sales.

Looking at the data in the area of ​​physical media worldwide, we expect that in the next five years these increases will continue and, what's more, they will be at a much higher level, because in the world there are already double-digit increases, over 13%, which is quite surprising – says Anna Ceynowa.
