Digital music sales in the UK are on the increase, according to Music Week.
In 2010, the UK spent £316.5 million on digital music, bringing the all-time figure to over £1 billion.
Of that £316.5 million, £146 million came from album sales. One in six album sales in the UK is now a digital download — last year, 21 million albums were bought digitally.
The biggest selling artist, when it comes to digital downloads, was Adele — online sales of '21' overtook Lady Gaga's 'The Fame' last month.
Other potentially interesting album sales-related facts: the average retail price of an album is now £7.32; and while 58.5% of music lovers only buy records in physical formats, 17.2% only buy music digitally. (The remaining 24.3% buy both.)
