================== ARTICLE START ==================
The mobile ringtones are creating mammoth revolution in the
market, surpassing the music industry alone. The market for mp3
ringtones is globally expected to rise around USD 5.2 billion
annually. Consumers worldwide are seeking towards digital
entertainment on their mobile handsets. While the mobile music
is on its peak, the growth of the music industry is unparalleled
with new high end mechanisms and ritzier models getting launched
on a regular basis.
The youth today is getting more fascinated by mobile music,
ringtones as well as downloads. Teenagers aged between 12 to 25
years of age, who are obsessed with mp3 ringtones, are leading
the industry earn greater amount of profits than ever before.
More than half of the mp3 ringtones downloading is greatly
contributed by the Hip Hop fraternity alone. Polyphonic
ringtones can now be availed in different genres owing to the
growing demand of consumers; Pop, Rock, Hip Hop and Bollywood,
to name a few.
Ringtones were initially invented to serve as an alert for the
mobile phone user to his incoming calls. Later when the rime
progressed, these little odes have turned out to be more
elaborative in the consumer market place. The technological
advancements now allow the use of real music within mobile
phones for ringtone purposes. The music entertainment industry
is now not just limited to generating small ringtones for its
consumers that the latter can now also use ones personal
favorite music as ringtones. This has also given the music
industry new commercial opportunities to expand its base.
Many a times, music and ringtone are interchangeably used with
other. There has also been a sturdy increase witnessed in the
sales of downloaded music over the recent past. The digital
revolution enables consumers to download their favorite songs
and set them as their mp3 ringtones, a major disappointment to
the ringtone industry. This tightens the competitiveness between
the two otherwise growing industries.
As per trade analysts, the Indian film industry (Bollywood)
alone generated about USD 1 billion from ringtones downloads
amounting to 1 million on an annual basis. The digital
revolution has also brought in a cliché demand for ringtones
through technologies like iPods, which can hold better amount of
ringtones, longer tunes and DVD clarity. Many global companies
such as Nokia, Motorola, Sony Ericsson and Samsung are also
introducing handsets that feature FM radios, MP3 players and a
good memory space to be more appealing to the consumers. While
all this is putting the music industry at a loss, it is charging
the consumer an expensive CD before he opts for a cheaper mp3
ringtone. Not just that, the music industry is also witnessing
things done against the law, such as transfer of music via
Bluetooth has reached thrice the amount mentioned in the law.
Globally, it is uncertain if the diminishing, conventional
music distribution will be able to stay in this rapidly-moving
digital world, growing by more than 50 percent annually, for a
longer period. Sooner the music companies may acquire artists
and film soundtracks for mobile downloads on 3G networks.
