In late August, Billboard reported that CD sales had plummeted to their lowest point since 1991.
“This week’s 3.97-million album sales tally is the smallest weekly sum for album sales since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking data in 1991,” the music industry weekly noted. “It’s also the first time weekly sales have fallen below four million in that time span.”
And it’s not only an issue of physical sales. Streaming services are cutting into digitally downloaded music sales, too.
