The combined income from streaming, downloads, physical sales like CDs and vinyl, and licensing for use in media saw a 10.6% year-on-year rise to £839m in 2017.
Revenue from vinyl records rose by 24% - meaning it's now one-fifth the size of the CD market. Perhaps high-definition vinyl can make that grow even further.
Record companies are hoping that big names like Ed Sheeran, Little Mix, Stormzy and Rag ‘n’ Bone Man will push growth even further.
Geoff Taylor, chief executive of the BPI and the Brit Awards, puts the success down to increasing awareness about the benefits of music streaming as well as new developments like smart speakers. The Amazon Echo and Google Home have a secure place in many people's homes - Apple's HomePod, however, not so much.
The long-rumoured possibility of YouTube launching a premium music service would also boost sales, should it ever come to fruition.
