Research: Digital music is led by Apple and Pandora
By Chris Marlowe
“When it comes to digital music, Apple and Pandora are the market leaders in their respective sectors, according to a new report from the NPD Group.
“Apple is far ahead of any other paid music download service, with a 64 percent share of the market in the second quarter of 2012. Amazon MP3 Store comes a distant second with 16 percent, and no other purveyor of paid downloads exceeds 5 percent. In fact, Google Play, eMusic, Zune Music Pass and all of the others combined only account for 20 percent.”
