The adoption of digital music differs greatly in different regions across the globe, presenting unique sets of challenges and opportunities. Europeans, for instance, are more active than Americans in both PC- and mobile-based music activities but are less likely to purchase digital music.

The music industry needs both overall product innovation and region-specific solutions to boost digital sales globally.
