Analysis of Japanese Music Market from “White Book of Digital Contents 2012” 〜digest〜

This is a digest of music part from “White Book of Digital Contents 2012”.

“White Book of Digital Contents” is supervised by Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.


Can persistent package music markets, suddenly dropping music distribution intended for feature-phones, and streaming services become a trigger for the music market? The reconstruction of business schemes coping with the environmental change caused by cloud computing, the enhancement of always-online connections and the magnificent spread of smartphones became an urgent challenge.

The potential of Japanese musical power is big as can be seen in the increase of artists successfully touring foreign countries and the rise of artists originating in “Dojin Music” (non-official self-published works).

We can expect that 2012 will be the starting point for structural change.
