A UK Music report puts the music industry’s contribution to the UK economy at £3.5bn, including £402m from music publishing. The report also estimates that music contributes £1.4bn in exports, and sustains around 100,000 full time equivalent jobs.
The MPA has around 260 members, representing nearly 4000 catalogues, covering every genre of music. They include all of the UK’s major music publishers, independent pop publishers, classical publishers, library music publishers and also printed music publishers.
The MPA has produced a series of short films entitled “The Business of Music Publishing” to explain the vital (yet often misunderstood) role that music publishing plays in today’s music industry eco-system.
