The worldwide background music-market is projected to grow by $421.73 million between 2023-2027, according to a new report from technology research/advisory firm Technavio. That translates into an annual rate of 7.69% for that period.

While such tunes are playing a growing role in a variety of environments, including hospitality, healthcare and corporations, they can be especially impactful in retail environments.

“Background music significantly enhances retail environments by influencing shopper engagement, relaxation and productivity,” the report notes. “It provides a branded experience, sets shopping pace, offers stress relief and boosts employee morale.”

The music industry has experienced significant revenue growth in the past three years, primarily driven by subscription-based streaming services, the report states. “Traditional pay-per-track/album sales were costly, leading to piracy. Affordable monthly subscriptions ($5.99-$9.99) offer unlimited song streams, making music consumption more accessible. Background music is now used in various sectors, including retail, hospitality, healthcare and corporate environments, enhancing ambience, customer engagement and productivity.”

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
