Promotion & Digital Distribution In China
While worldwide music distribution has increasingly become a reality for indie artists and labels in the digital age, the largest market of music listeners - China - remains untapped, due to the lack of trusted online distribution such as iTunes, Amazon & Spotify, as well as government regulations & censorship. Added to this is the fact that all the major Western social sites (Facebook, Twitter, Youtube,...) are blocked by the Chinese government.
On a positive note though, China will make important strides in opening its music market as well as instituting a copyright regime to support it over the next couple of years. It's a market with 1.07 billion mobile phone users, 800 million internet users (over 2x the U.S.), 400 million under age 30 and the fastest growing middle class in the world. China in actually set to overtake the U.S in smartphone sales in 2012.
