Industry statistics
Each year the AMA reviews the import statistics for music products and produces a comprehensive analysis widely used in the industry for business planning. The AMA now has a body of data going back to 1995. The AMA has also worked extensively with the Australian Bureau of Statistics to ensure more accurate product dissections making the data more reliable.

The data is reported against a calendar year, enabling it to be easily compared with international markets.

This report is available exclusively to AMA members.
Soft copy of the annual reports are posted in the Members section of this website.

Research into the relationship between music and the brain

The AMA keeps an active watch for new research and can provide relevant information on request.
