Introduction

A full report of the Austrian music industry as of November 2015.

Highlights

  • Austria is one of Europe’s smaller music markets. Although well developed, with a relatively high per-capita spending rate on music, the country is one of Western Europe’s laggards when it comes to the transition from physical formats to digital.
  • Like its larger neighbor Germany, whose music buyers remain firmly attached to the CD album, physical formats dominate spending on recorded music in Austria. There are, however, signs that music subscription services are gaining increased traction with consumers.
