A UK government report shows that Apple’s streaming music service ranks third in the regional market.
An independent survey cited in a previous study found that one million subscribers in the UK were canceling their music accounts. The study, which was conducted by the UK, broke down the numbers in a ‘research and analysis’ post, with Spotify taking the top spot with a 50-60 percent market share, followed by Amazon with a 20-30 percent share. . Apple Music came in third, with a 10-20 percent share, and SoundCloud, YouTube Music, Deezer and Tidal with 0-10 percent.
The data came from the CMA, or Competition and Markets Authority, and the numbers are believed to come from the streaming companies. The government agency has not mentioned specific prices and says the details reveal the average royalty rates and average earnings of UK musicians.
