Vinyl Sales Continue To Increase In 2009
Interestingly enough, vinyl still accounts for less than 1% of overall album sales. In fact, according to Soundscan, 121.8 million CDs and 33.2 million digital albums have been sold so far in 2009. While vinyl sales do account for a small percentage of total album sales, they have consistently been increasing, while CD sales have dwindled over the years. Again, Soundscan reports that they have plummetted from 553.4 million in 2006 to 360.6 million in 2008. In that same time period MP3 sales grew from 32.6 million to 65.8 million.
