We are estimating that the total number of paid users of digital music in Western Europe was 801 million in 2009, and this number is going to increase to 158.8 million by the end of 2014, for a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 15.5% (previously 11.7%).

Online single download users to increase from 57 million to 123.1 million over the forecast period, 2010 - 2014

In Western Europe where broadband penetration is high, the majority of digital music users download music online rather than through mobile networks. We forecast that online paid download users will increase from 57.0 million in 2009 to 123.1 million in 2014 (CAGR of 14.1%, previously 12.7%). Growth of mobile download users will be lower at a CAGR of 13.8%. The number of paid music download users using their mobile devices will increase from 22.5 million in 2009 to 29.8 million in 2014.

We forecast that digital music retail revenues in Western Europe will increase from $1.2 billion in 2009 to $4.6 billion in 2014, for a CAGR of 32.3%. As broadband penetration becomes more ubiquitous and illegal file sharing becomes more difficult, revenues from online single download users will grow dramatically over the next several years. We expect that retail revenues from online paid download users will increase from $0.806 billion in 2009 to $3.0 billion in 2014.
