According to the US entertainment and media outlook: 2014–2018, the music industry can anticipate plenty of movement over the next 5 years.
The Outlook results most notably show differences between growth potential for the streaming and downloading of digitally recorded music as well as live music. While downloading of music will remain the largest area of revenue and continue to grow (albeit slowly) streaming of live music will see the greatest growth. Live music will have a slow but healthy rebuilding of revenue due to an increase in both ticket sales and sponsorship, and it will become the second largest revenue stream for the US music industry.
