March 8, 2006 at 2:14 PM (PT)
Excluding CD-DVD combos, music DVD suppliers last year sold 21.4 million music DVDs, up from 20.6 million in 2004, according to NIELSEN ENTERTAINMENT research presented at the 2nd Annual MUSIC DVD AWARDS. That translates to nearly 4% growth compared with growth of less than 1% for the DVD business overall.
That said, music DVDs account for just 2.7% of total music transactions recorded in 2005, the first year the total number of transactions topped 1 billion. CDs still account for the vast majority of music purchases, NIELSEN research shows, with 61.7%, followed by digital tracks at 35.2%.
