Mixed tunes: Revenue will rise, but the industry will contend with rising import competition



Abstract

The Retail Market for Musical Instruments

Rising price competition made musical instruments more affordable to consumers during the past five years, which expanded the Retail Market for Musical Instruments industry. The market has also experienced a surge of new entrants; though traditionally dominated by small brick-and-mortar locations, online retailers and big-box stores are increasingly offering industry products. However, the increase in market participants, coupled with rising penetration of low-cost imports, has exacerbated price competition and prevented growth in the industry's profit margins. Still, rising disposable income over the next five years will encourage budding musicians to purchase industry products, as well as enable experienced players to invest in higher-margin instruments.

Companies in this industry sell musical instruments, such as guitars and pianos, and may also generate revenue from products sold alongside instruments, like sheet music or CDs. This report shows the size of the retail market for instruments and includes all major retail channels, including specialty stores, general merchandisers and e-retailers. Sales of audio and video equipment like amplifiers and microphones are excluded in this industry, as are musical instrument repairs and rentals.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
