The average German spends 56 Euros a year on music. If he’s male, he might spend 80.
One in four bought a CD last year. Among the 30-49 age group it was almost one in two (47.9%).
But only one in ten (11%) bought a download.
They’re keen, the Germans, but not quick.
The stats are to be found in Musikindustrie in Zahlen 2013 published today by Bundesverbands Musikindustrie (BVMI) for 29.90 Euros, but available free online: www.musikindustrie.de/jahrbuecher.
