ARIA 2011 Sales Stats

ARIA recently released its Wholesale Sales Figures for 2011. Digital Sales now account for 36.7% of all music sales in Australia demonstrating that despite the near 10% growth in digital purchases, most consumers still prefer CDs.

While there was an overall increase in the number of units purchased (20% higher than 2010) there was an overall drop in amount of money spent with annual sales of $382.7 million, down $2 million from 2010. This probably reflects a drop in the purchase price of music as well as perhaps the move to digital singles away from albums.
