Digital music sales growth flattens
The figures come as more record labels turn online in order to battle falling physical sales and adapt to an increasingly online-based generation.
However, Nielsen Music managing director Jean Littolff told Reuters the flat sales could be due to poor consumer confidence and that it isn't a signal of falling sales overall.
"I think this is a plateau, it doesn't mean that this digital consumption is going to drop significantly," he said. "It's a plateau, but it's not yet saturation."
