Studies and statistics

New technologies and trends are shaping the production, distribution and consumption of music at an accelerating rate. For this reason, we are collecting information, which by combining and analysing, we can offer a comprehensive view of development in the music industry. On this page you will find research and statistics we have produced ourselves and collected from external sources.

The consumption of music in the nordic countries

The international research data and analytics group YouGov has conducted the Polaris Nordic digital music survey as a joint venture involving Teosto and the Nordic copyright organisations Koda and Tono. The reports describe the use and consumption of digital music in Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark.

Music Listening in Finland

Teosto and IFPI Finland’s Music Listening in Finland surveys are carried out every autumn through Norstat’s consumer panel. More than one thousand 13–75-year-olds, of whom most were aged 13–18, respons to the survey yearly.

Equality in the music industry

In March 2023, Teosto with ten other Finnish music industry actors commissioned a large-scale survey that sought to find out why only one in five music authors in Finland are female or non-binary. More than half of music students are female.

Inappropriate behavior in the music sector

The online survey examined the implementation of equality in the Finnish music industry. Experiences of and encounters with inappropriate behavior are common in the Finnish music industry.  Inappropriate behavior takes many forms, including inappropriate comments and belittling, and discrimination or harassment based on gender, sexual orientation, or ethnic background.
