Market Research

Market research is a key part of WIN’s mission. We act as a central hub to collect data from countries around the world and describe the economics of the independent music sector.


WINTEL is WIN’s flagship market research project, mapping the global independent recorded music market.

Previous reports, covering the period 2015 to 2017, represent the most comprehensive assessment of the global independent record label sector ever compiled.


The WINTRENDS report turns the spotlight on the trends observed across the independent recorded music sector globally.

It integrates the findings of a major collaborative global survey and a series of articles featuring contributions from independent music companies and their trade associations around the world.


The Latin American Observatory of Independent Music is a joint project promoted by our members IMICHILE (Chile), ABMI (Brazil) and ASIAr (Argentina).

OLMI is a data analysis platform aimed at characterizing the Latin American independent music ecosystem, addressing each country’s social, cultural, and economic aspects.
