This report studies the Music Publishing market, Music publishing involves music recording, merchandizing, publishing, and distributing musical content. To publish the musical content, music publisher requires a copyright of the song along with fee, which is commonly known as royalty. Music publishing involves the acquisition of rights to, and licensing of, musical compositions (as opposed to recordings) from songwriters, composers or other rights holders. Music publishing revenues are derived from five main royalty sources: Mechanical, Performance, Synchronization, Digital and Other. In addition, music publishing includes other responsibilities, such as acquiring songs, administering copyrights, exploiting the artistic material, and protecting copyrights.

Growth Drivers: Music Publishing

1. Diversified digital media outlets may open up new revenue streams for struggling publishers

The Music Publishing industry is in the midst of an important transition. The fall of physical album sales and digital downloads over the past five years has forced publishers to seek new revenue sources and become less dependent on traditional licensing platforms. To meet changing consumer needs, music publishers are continuously cultivating licensing agreements with new revenue streams like mobile outlets, online radio platforms and subscription-based streaming music services. The industry's shift from high-margin physical album sales and digital downloads to online streaming music may result in continued challenges.

2. The industry is taking steps to improve the policing of illegal downloading.

3. With more new songwriters and artists entering the music industry, the demand for music publishers, as well as the services provided by them, is expected to surge palpably. An upsurge in the global entertainment and media industry has been a key driver for the music publishing industry. The following benefits offered by music publishing companies to artistes will also impel growth: Established industry contacts, networking capabilities, advance payments, secured copyrights, publicity collateral and fixed contracts.

4. In addition, with the number of total smartphones in use around the world expected to reach 4.7 billion by 2020 according to forecasts from PricewaterhouseCoopers, we expect that mobile will continue to represent significant opportunity for music-based content. Figures from comScore’s July 2016 MobiLens Plus data release show that the uptake of music among users of such phones is significant: according to the data, more than half of existing smartphone users in the U.S. and 45% of their counterparts in the U.K., listened to music downloaded and stored or streamed on their handsets from services such as Apple Music and iTunes, Pandora, iHeartRadio, Deezer and Spotify, among other sources, during the month. We believe that the demand for music-related products, services and applications that are optimized for smartphones and tablets will continue to grow with the further development of these platforms.

Approximately 37 % of that revenue comes from the public performance of compositions, when music is performed publicly through broadcast on television, radio, cable and satellite, live performance at a concert or other performance venues, but songwriters and publishing companies benefit greatly from a multitude of revenue streams.
