My label will act as a catalyst for the careers of artists, as well as become the liaison between the artists and their fans. Industry Analysis The music industry has been subject to a steady downturn for the last few years due to increased illegal downloads, piracy and shrinking shelf space in brick and mortar businesses. Physical record sales have been continuously dropping in recent years, while has online market has made subtle increases. Large record labels are making entrance into the market very difficult for small independent labels, but they are also taking majority of the risks. Universal Music has the largest share of the market at 31.4 percent, followed by Sony Music at 27.4, Warner Music at 19.8, Indies as a group at 11.6, and EMI at 9.6 percent.
