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

The 2021 edition is being produced in consultation with House of Research.


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

Inspired by the model of the Digital Observatory of Chilean Music, its objectives are characterizing the independent sector to optimize the decision-making of Latin American agents; promoting a competitive and collaborative ecosystem; and providing added value to hundreds of companies and their associations in the region.
