Mobile Ringtones - Will It Surpass The Music Industry?
‘If Music be the food of love, give me a Mobile.’ The Phone that shrank the
planet is yet to deliver another mammoth revolution fiercely. The global
ringtone market is forecasted to grow around $5.2 billion annually. There is an
emerging trend among consumers worldwide to seek digital entertainment from
their mobile phones. With the soaring popularity of Mobile Music aside, the
Industry’s growth is unprecedented due to high end mechanisms and ritzier models
coming out every now and then.
Mobile Music, ringtones and downloads are a major fascination amongst the youth.
Ring tone industry in particular is reaping fruits of the teenage obsession with
‘gizmos of desire’. This group, mostly between 12 to 25 years old, likes to
purchase their favourite tune without having to pay a higher price for a CD.
According to sources, the Hip Hop fraternity’s contribution accounts for more

also striving neck-to-neck to come up with handsets loaded with a variety of
appealing features such as FM radios, MP3 players and a good memory capacity as
a result of the stiff competition. The Music Industry obviously isn’t cheerful
about ringtones taking over the CD market sales wise. It expects you to buy an
expensive CD before a cheap ringtone!
Even as the trend goes on, inexorable, the mobile music industry is facing
dubious times on the legal front. It is estimated that transfer of music files
via Bluetooth has reached an enormous volume, almost thrice the legal way.
Fortunately or unfortunately these illegal routes have been serving as money
making catalysts rather the other way. In India itself, the mobile piracy
business is as big as 30 crore or more at this very moment.
Globally, we are witnessing a time where technology is converging majorly into
telecommunications. It is highly unlikely for laid back, conventional music
distribution mediums to prevail in a fast moving digital world for long now.
Statistics prove that where mobile music downloads is growing by over 50 per
cent every year; the growth of legal conventional music is diminishing.
It’s not too far when music companies would acquire artists and film soundtracks
only for mobile downloads. With full songs downloads on mobile becoming a
successful service worldwide specifically on 3G networks, it simply brings this
