Sheet Music Publishers
Competition from free digital substitutes and self-publlishing platforms has diminished Sheet Music Publishers industry revenue over the past five years. Limited goverment funding for the arts has further contributed to this decline, as music educators have reduced purchases of industry products amid budget constraints. Although the industry's move to begin selling digital sheet music has mitigated its overall decline, the internet will also continue to constrain the industry's growth potential by enabling the sharing of pirated sheet music. These trends are expected to continue over the next five years, contributing to further decreases in industry revenue.
