British Phonographic Industry reports profit growth in 2009 thanks to increased digital income streams that have compensated losses in the physical copies sales.

The UK’s British Phonographic Industry (BPI) published the results of 2009 music sales. The total year growth is 1.4% from £916 m to £928.8m (approximately $1.4 m). The reason of such a growth is an increased interest to digital music content sold via mobile, ad-supported online services and subscriptions. Digital music content has brought incredible 47.8% of growth, bringing the income of £188.9m. This is about 20.3% from the total income from music sales.

The decline of physical music sales is 6.1% compared with previous year (2008). Geoff Taylor, the BPI’s CEO, admits that “this is the sign of music industry stabilizing that will encourage UK labels to invest in interesting musicians, as well as for other companies to create new digital services”.

But it is early to say about well being. The figures telling that in 2009 it was OK don’t mean that the growth will be increased or even saved on a same level. Taylor says that the growth of profit from digital sales is growing not enough to cover the losses of physical sales in future. The main reason of this, according to Taylor’s concerns, is illegal P2P services that usually violate the copyright.

The difference in tendencies that separate digital music content from hard copies is far from illegal P2P’s. Not many years ago a person had to buy the whole album even if he liked only a few songs from it. Now user can purchase album compositions separately for far less cost (Apple’s iTunes offer $1.29 for a song). That is why it is more profitable to user online music stores than go to a music shop and by the whole CD.

BPI was the key initiator of Digital Economy Act that provides with strict measures for online content sharing control, like “three-strikes” policy for file sharing services, traffic filtering and prohibition of public Wi-Fi access. All these measures have nothing to do with the main problem of music industry – the out-of-date business model. The 2009 year has shown that even without copyright protection reinforcement it is possible to gain profit growth and that the problem is in physical market segment.

Earlier this month the BPI announced it was going to proceed against file-sharing services until the Act comes in force. The fact is that music industry wants more than gets at the expense of others but not by improving itself.
