The music industry has substantially changed in a small period of time. Teosto studies the changes in the industry and the opportunities of new technologies.
The development of our operations is based on up-to-date research and market information both produced by Teosto and acquired from external sources. Teosto creates a great deal of music-related information due to its basic operations, and by combining and analysing that information, we are able to offer extensive research information on the music industry and its trends. We also provide Teosto’s music data for scientific use.
Active network of affiliates
We conduct research cooperation with companies, scientists, higher education institutions, the market research industry, different music industry operators, and other interest groups. We have received financial support for our projects from, for instance, Tekes and the Ministry of Education and Culture.
Teosto’s research unit has, for instance, examined the consumer habits concerning digital contents in the Nordic Countries, the income formation, taxation and business operations of music authors, utilisation of music recognition technologies, the current state of rehearsal rooms, and the effect of background music on purchasing behaviour.
We also regularly investigate the sources of background music used in Finland and the customer satisfaction of our customer authors and users.
