MRC Data is focusing attention on music fans in Latin America, taking a deep dive into the biggest music markets across the continent, including Brazil, Colombia, Chile and Argentina. In a new study released today looking at music’s role in Mexico, it was revealed that 89% of online consumers in Mexico (ages 13+) engaged with music over the past year. When breaking down genre listenership, Mexican Pop is the most popular followed closely by Mexican Rock and Latin American Pop.
This survey, conducted among online consumers, also highlights that streaming in Mexico is hugely popular, with 94% of music listeners streaming music and almost 50% of music listeners paying to stream. And not surprisingly, 3 in 4 music listeners use their smartphone to listen to music. See how this compares to the other countries MRC Data has studied during the pandemic (Spain, France, Japan, U.S.).
