Musical Instrument & Supplies Stores in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Musical Instrument & Supplies Stores in the US

The Musical Instrument and Supplies Stores industry has been out of tune over the five years to 2018. Despite increasing consumer confidence and per capita disposable income amid recent economic growth, the industry's revenue declined. Decreasing time spent on leisure and sports, as well as increased digitalization, has led consumers to shift away from industry products and services. As a result, revenue has fallen steadily. The industry's outlook is anticipated to follow in line with the current period, with recent declines anticipated to continue. Over the five years to 2023, IBISWorld expects industry revenue to continue falling.

The Musical Instrument and Supplies Stores industry retails an extensive selection of musical instruments, sheet music and related supplies, such as microphones, amplifiers and audio systems. These products are usually sold directly to end consumers. Many industry operators also repair and rent these products and provide music instruction.

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.
