How many CDs have there been bought?

A 13 percent drop in CD sales in 2012

Believe it or not, music sales in 2012 show that CDs are dead.  Statistics show that there was a 13 percent drop in CD sales in 2012.  The main idea is that while digital sales continue their climb, physical sales continue their slow death.  Vinyl discs represent a real surprise.  Vinyl saw sales growth for the fifth straight year in 2012, with a 17.7 percent.  Believe it or not, there were 4.6 million records sold in 2012.  This is definitely something.
