Modularity has become increasingly relevant in the stock music market place

In 2018, the global royalty free music market by track was estimated at around $ 721.8 million. Currently, the industry is undergoing a paradigm shift. The low-quality stock music that once dominated the industry kept musicians out of the game, thereby keeping track quality low. However, as emerging business models harmonize the quality and price, genuine composers are re-entering the field and raising the standard of the industry.

Emerging businesses are harmonizing the quality and price, and genuine composers are re-entering the field to raise the standard of the industry, which is contributing to the growth of the royalty free music market. Further, modularity has become increasingly relevant in the stock music marketplace with players putting musical expression at the fingertips by enabling users to build their own track with component tracks, re-balance the music to fit audio elements and voice-overs.

Several vendors are turning toward offering complete music solutions/brand soundtracks for hotels, stores, exhibitions, and other public areas, wherein they schedule, license, update and handle the technicalities for end-users.
