The music industry remains highly competitive but is constantly changing. A wide variety of roles are available and new roles are being developed to reflect how the industry has had to adapt. Music is now available in a variety of formats and online music sales have increased dramatically. The major record companies have had to diversify and are now finding new revenue streams through music used in video games, mobile downloads etc. Whilst CD sales have decreased over the past years, areas such as live music and festivals and internet retailing have seen large increases.
