A Revived and Growing Industry
The global music industry is experiencing a revival, fueled by digitization, AI, social media, and streaming platforms. New monetization methods, rising paid streaming penetration, and the resurgence of live music events post-pandemic also drive attractive growth potential.
MUSQ LLC Founder and CEO David Schulhof said in a news release that the ETF “capitalizes on the global affinity for music.”
“By opening doors to a diversified portfolio of companies critical to the music industry, we are facilitating investors’ access to the industry’s ongoing growth and innovation,” Schulhof added.
Goldman Sachs predicts the industry’s revenue will reach $53.2 billion by 2030, growing at a compound annual rate of 12%.
Investors are increasingly seeing the music industry as a growing investment opportunity. The listing of MUSQ comes hot off the heels of Clouty launching its own ETF targeting the music and entertainment sectors. The ETF (TUNE ) invests in global companies in the music, media, and entertainment industries.
