U.S. Vinyl Album Sales Grew 15% in 2018, Led by the Beatles, Pink Floyd, David Bowie & Panic! at the Disco
1/12/2019 by Keith Caulfield

Vinyl album sales in the U.S. hit their 13th consecutive year of growth, with 'Guardians' being the top-selling LP and "Yellow Submarine” the biggest vinyl single.

Vinyl album sales continue to be a bright spot among an otherwise bleak album sales picture. 16.8 million vinyl albums were sold in 2018, according to Nielsen Music (up 14.6 percent) — marking the 13th consecutive year of growth for the format. 16.8 million is also a new yearly high for vinyl album sales since Nielsen Music began tracking sales in 1991.

Comparatively, overall album sales (vinyl LP, CD, digital, cassette, etc.) in 2018 fell 17.7 percent to 141 million.

Vinyl LP sales accounted for 11.9 percent of all album sales in 2018 (16.8 million of 141 million). In 2017, the format comprised 6.5 percent of album sales.

Nielsen Music’s 2018 tracking year ran from Dec. 29, 2017 through Jan. 3, 2019. Due to a quirk in the calendar, there were 53 weeks in 2018, instead of the usual 52. So, for 2018 volume comparisons to 2017, a corresponding 53-week period is used by Nielsen Music for 2017: Dec. 30, 2016 through Jan. 4, 2018. Numbers in this story are rounded.

Perhaps not surprisingly, vinyl LPs were 19.1 percent of all physical album sales (CDs, LPs, cassettes, etc.) in 2018. That’s a new Nielsen-era record share for the once-dormant format, up from 14 percent in 2017.

Vinyl’s growing share of the physical album market isn’t shocking, considering CD album sales continue to falter.

In total, physical album sales equaled 88 million in 2018, down 15.8 percent. And of that sum, CD album sales were 70.7 million — down 20.9 percent.

The CD format continues to be the leader for all album purchases, while the digital format is the runner-up with 53.4 million digital albums sold in 2018 (down 20.7 percent).

TOP-SELLING VINYL ARTISTS: The top-selling vinyl albums artist in 2018 was the Beatles, with 321,000 copies sold of their catalog on vinyl. Their biggest seller was Abbey Road, which finishes the year as the No. 4 largest-seller, with 76,000 copies. The Fab Four also have two more titles among the year’s top 15-sellers: their self-titled (White Album) is No. 11 (56,000) and Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band is No. 13 (50,000).

The top 10-biggest selling vinyl acts of the year are rounded out mostly by classic and veteran rock acts:

1. The Beatles (321,000)
2. Pink Floyd (177,000)
3. David Bowie (150,000)
4. Panic! at the Disco (148,000)
5. Fleetwood Mac (139,000)
6. Led Zeppelin (138,000)
7. Michael Jackson (131,000)
8. Jimi Hendrix (119,000)
9. Metallica (116,000)
10. Queen (113,000)

Methodology
This is not a list of songs which made the most money, but which songs are the most popular with fans, so it’s not all revenue for each song.This list is based on just revenue from song downloads and on-demand streams because consumers make the choice for each song download and each on-demand stream. Thus, the song list is measured and ranked by revenue streams where the consumer has the say. So it excludes revenue from programmed streams, radio play and synch because industry professionals are choosing to play those songs, not the fans. It also excludes album sales revenue, and physical single sales. While buying the latter configuration would seem the fans are voting, that revenue was also excluded because they could only buy songs chosen to be released from the album by the label and/or band as physical singles.
The ranking was compiled by combining the various versions, as tracked by Nielsen Music, of Led Zeppelin songs, whether from the original studio album, or one of their live albums? or as an add on to the re-mastered album, even if another name is used, all streams and downloads from all version were added together. Then using current pricing, an average wholesale price of 90 cents per song -- most Led Zeppelin songs sell for $1.29 -- is multiplied against all downloads tracked by Nielsen Music in the U.S.
For on-demand audio and on-demand video streams Billboard chose to use a blended rate since streaming subscribers are likely unaware of the differences in royalty payouts to labels for on-demand audio, which Billboard estimates average $0.0054, and on-demand video, which Billboard estimates averages $0.0018. Consequently, Billboard chose to use a blended audio/video rate, by multiplying the 77 percent of total Zeppelin streams that are audio by the per-play rate of $0.0054; and multiply the 23 percent of total Zeppelin streams that are video by its per-play rate of $0.0018; and then add the results together to get a blended rate of $0.0046. So with all downloads for each song being multiplied by 90 cents and then all on-demand streams for each being multiplied by almost a half a cent, those amounts were added together to produce a revenue total for each song, which were than ranked by the largest amount to the smallest.
Finally, as this is a ranking based on U.S. digital revenue, all the streams and downloads that were compiled and calculated to build this list cover the time range from when Zeppelin first allowed its tracks to be available as downloads in November 2007 and in streams in December 2015, both through July 12, 2018, as counted by Nielsen Music.
