2017 Latin RIAA Shipment & Revenue Statistics | RIAA
2017 was the year that Latin music filled our playlists and dominated the airwaves like never before. Revenues from Latin music in the United States grew 37% to $243 million. More than any other genre, the growth in streaming is powering Latin music’s resurgence, accounting for 84% of Latin music revenues, while paid subscription streams now comprise nearly half of total Latin streaming revenues. But not all streaming is created equal: with lower payouts to music creators, on-demand ad-supported streams represent a higher percentage of Latin music than the overall U.S. music market, further exposing the industry’s value gap.
