We support UK Music and its recommendations and call on the UK government to invest in the five-step plan. This includes setting a gold standard in intellectual property protection and reducing red tape for EU touring, to ensure the UK retains its position as a leader across all sectors of the music market.

Andrea Czapary Martin, CEO, PRS for Music



The UK is the second-largest exporter of music in the world however the global market for music is becoming far more competitive than ever before. Although this recent report highlights publishing-related income in 2021 as showing strong growth with substantial increases in streaming revenues, we must continue to work together to grow, nurture, protect and support songwriters, composers and rights owners alike, in order to maintain a sustainable future across this important sector of our UK economy.
