    Notes: Music streaming service revenues grew by 28% year-over-year and comprised 27% of total industry revenues during the first half of 2014, up from 20% share in H1 2013. As such, streaming revenues are now almost on par with total sales in physical formats (primarily CDs and vinyl), which represented 28% share of total revenues and were down 14% year-over-year. Despite the strong growth in streaming revenue, industry sales dipped (2.5% at wholesale value; 4.9% at retail value).
