Digital services make up for one-fifth of the music revenue that comes to U.K.

”It’s encouraging to see industry revenues stabilise and even show modest growth in 2009,” BPI chief executive, Geoff Taylor said.

“The CD continues to show greater resilience than many predicted – it is an excellent digital product. The pace of growth of new digital services is encouraging, but the size of the market continues to be constrained by competition from illegal downloads,” he added.
