NAMM says its members continually cite information and statistics, as well as education and training, as the primary reasons for belonging to the association. In keeping with NAMM’s mission to strengthen the music products industry, it says members can use the comprehensive 2016 NAMM Global Report to discern industry trends and spot new opportunities. The 2016 Global Report reveals retail sales figures, unit sales information, analysis, and import/export numbers for musical instruments and products.
Statistics are compiled from independent sources from around the world, including The U.S. Census Bureau. This year’s Global Report captures a snapshot of 24 countries, the report’s largest narrative to date, including Argentina, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, the Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Norway, Russia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and the United States. For 2016, data on the Netherlands was added to this global summary. The Canadian section of the Global Report was compiled with the help of Canadian Music Trade Publisher, Jim Norris.
You must be an Active NAMM Member in order to download the Global Report. Non members are able to purchase the Global Report (price: $1,000). For more informaiton, go to www.namm.org.
