Music Publishing in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Music Publishing in Canada

The Music Publishing industry is in the midst of a gradual transition toward royalty collection from subscription-based music services. Falling sales of both physical albums and digital downloads have forced publishers to seek out new revenue sources and become less dependent on their traditional licensing platforms. To meet the changing needs of the consumer, publishers are continuously cultivating licensing agreements with newer revenue streams, such as mobile applications, online radio platforms and subscription-based music services. This transition has buoyed the industry in recent years, and the industry has experienced steady growth as a result. The future remains bright for an industry that has struggled with frequent changes to its revenue streams over the past decade. In addition, more government oversight online to prevent music piracy will benefit publishers in the long run.

This industry is responsible for acquiring and registering copyrights for the musical compositions of musicians, songwriters and composers. Establishments licence the intellectual property of their clients, authorize the use of these compositions through various media outlets and ensure that royalties are paid to the creators of these works. Establishments act on behalf of the copyright owners and generate revenue through various licensing agreements.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
