The recording industry, which had $40 billion in annual sales 10 years ago, is now bringing in just half that amount. At the same time, digital downloads – which make up a fifth of those sales – is seeing slowing growth. This makes for an opportune market for Internet radio. Forrester predicts the number of U.S. subscribers for subscription-based cloud music services will rise from 2.1 million now, to five million by 2014.
