Promotion & Digital Distribution In China

The Challenge

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.

The Opportunity

On a positive note though, China has witnessed a transformation in its music market and industry over the past few years. Led by government efforts to legitimize the market, the growth of legal streaming service and changing consumer behavior, the music industry has reaching that 'inflection point'. According to the IFPI's Global Music Report, China has lept from the 21st largest music market in 2013 to the 12th on 2016, with 20.3% growth in the value of the recorded music industry last year, driven by 30.6% increase in streaming revenue. It's a market with over 1 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. According to eMarketer, there were over 500 million smartphone users in China in 2014, a figure will exceed 700 million in 2018. In other words, it is likely to become the largest music market in the world over the next decade.
