Household consumption of music
Australians continue to spend $2 billion on music each year.  -  Industry  -  Music

Even in tough economic times, the music business is big business.

In 2009/10, each Australian household spent an estimated $380 on music-related goods and services, totalling over $2 billion economy-wide.  That’s more than they spent on internet charges, dental fees or domestic holiday airfares.

We all know the music industry is changing fast – but overall household spending on music is steady,  confirming the enduring importance of music to Australian communities.
