And here we are like every year with the article dedicated to the annual digital music report of IFPI. A way to keep you informed of the situation of music consumption from a global point of view. This 2012 was the year that the digital market became what it is likely to be in the coming years.

This will also be the year in which the majors return to play their role. And it will also be the year when, by coincidence, the streaming explodes.
