According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Vinyl Record Market Report by Product (LP/EP Vinyl Records, Single Vinyl Records), Feature (Colored, Gatefold, Picture), Gender (Men, Women), Age Group (13-17, 18-25, 26-35, 36-50, Above 50), Application ( Private, Commercial), Distribution Channel (Supermarkets and Hypermarkets, Independent Retailers, Online Stores, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the global vinyl record market reached a value of US$ 1.8 Billion in 2023. A vinyl record is an analog sound storage device that is generally used for storing music. This rotating device is manufactured from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) that is pressed thin with grooves to produce sound. It is a plastic plate that contains a single continuous groove that produces sound when tracked by a turntable needle, known as stylus. Along with this, it is equipped with a turntable, tone arm, cartridge, pre-amplifier and amplifier. Traditionally, it was widely adopted as the primary medium for commercial music creation. However, in recent years, it has gained immense traction among new-generation musical artists as well.

Global Vinyl Record Market Trends: 

The global market is primarily driven by the increasing popularity of promotional activities of extended play (EP) records. Moreover, the aesthetic appearance of vinyl records has led to the rising product demand across the globe. Since these records are widely adopted by audiophiles, collectors and disc jockeys (DJs) and is the fastest growing and selling medium of music, despite the acceptance of digital media, this is creating a positive market outlook. Along with this, numerous leading players are heavily investing in the launching of limited or deluxe-edition albums, which is significantly supporting the product demand on the global level. Apart from this, continual technological advancements in the manufacturing of vinyl records in order to maintain high-definition (HD) audio quality, improve disc capacity and minimize the overall costs of production are contributing to the growth of the market. Other factors, including rapid urbanization and the rising adoption of aggressive marketing strategies and promotional campaigns by music personalities, are also positively influencing the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 3.4 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.1% during 2024-2032.
