Research & Reports

The success of the music industry is largely dependent on the talent it works with.

But, like all other industry sectors, it is also affected by many factors outside its control such as the UK's economic performance, the shade and priorities of Government and public opinion.

However, backed by strong, hard evidence and robust research the music industry can influence Government thinking and the media agenda.

UK Music is, therefore, committed to an extensive programme of research which defines the industry's place within the country's cultural and economic framework and can also inform and influence current debate and decision making.

The organisation has already undertaken a number of major research projects, which have helped underpin its work in a wide range of areas. 

These include but are not limited to:

  • The first definitive investigation of the value of the whole music industry and its value to the UK economy
  • A study of the impact of international and national music tourists, visiting festivals and large scale concerts, on the national and regional economies
  • A baseline study to determine the number of small, licensed venues in England and Wales currently staging live music.  This will enable subsequent surveys to measure the positive impact the Live Music Act, which passed into law in October 2012, has had on the grass roots live sector.
