French music trade association SNEP has reported a rise in trade earnings from recorded-music sales. Total trade income increased year-on-year, marking only the second time in the last 10 years that sales registered an uptick.


  • The latest results published by trade association SNEP show earnings are around one-third what they used to be in the early 2000s. However, the difference now from 12 months ago is that income figures are positive, with sales benefiting from the rise in the popularity of access services.
  • Apart from increased sales of mobile single tracks, video downloads, and other minor mobile formats, all the revenue growth last year came from subscriptions and advertising-supported streaming.
