Vinyl has been the surprise music success story of the past decade, a format which has experienced further demand during the COVID-19 pandemic. Whilst the first half of 2020 saw notable disruptions in the vinyl market, with stores closed and pressing plants operating at limited capacity, consumer demand has since accelerated, with many consumers having an increased disposable income to spend on vinyl. As a result, vinyl shipments heavily picked up in the second half of 2020. Demand continues to rise at an impressive rate, with more artists releasing music in vinyl and big releases expected in 2021. In addition, more established online distribution channels are easing vinyl purchases. Find out more data-led insights in our latest market report.
