Fall in cd sales
feel this is due to the likes of spotify and other streaming services. i have spotify premium and don't buy any cd's now. cd sales will only decline now, and the fact that more hi-fi and av units will integrate these streaming providers into there equipment.ie onkyo 609. also make more enviroment sense not to produce cd's.
Spotify is like having an enormous world collection of music. Less all the manufacturing of cd's.
no transport needed
no materials needed
maybe bands will just have to play music because they enjoy it.
