- Vinyl record sales to soar in 2022 jun 06, 2023
The year 2022 has witnessed an unprecedented increase in vinyl record sales worldwide. Since its resurgence in the 2000s, the vinyl market has seen steady growth year on year. However, the year 2022 has been a turning point in the history of vinyl, as sales have skyrocketed worldwide.
In the United States, the Recording Industry Association (RIAA) reported that vinyl sales increased by 32% in the first half of 2022 compared to the same period last year. This represents an all-time high for the vinyl industry, which has seen a 92% increase in sales since 2016.
The UK has also seen a boom in vinyl sales in 2022, with a 23.5% increase in the first half of the year, according to the Official Charts Company. The company reported that more than 3.2 million vinyl records were sold in the first half of 2022, representing an increase of 35.5 per cent compared to the same period last year.
Growth in vinyl sales has been seen across the globe, with countries such as Japan, Germany and France reporting a significant increase in sales in 2022. This can be attributed to a number of factors, such as the nostalgic appeal of the format, superior sound quality and the tactile and visual experience that vinyl offers.
Another factor driving the growth of vinyl sales in 2022 is the increase in vinyl record production. Major vinyl record manufacturers have increased their production capacity to meet the growing demand, and many new artists have released their albums in vinyl format, which has helped to increase supply.
