Sheet Music Publishers in the US - Industry Market Research Report

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.

This industry primarily publishes sheet music, songbooks and digital sheet music. Educators, students, musicians and hobbyists use the industry’s products. Revenue generated from sheet music published exclusively in digital format is excluded from the industry.

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.
