While most of the world's music markets have become increasingly digital over the past decade, Japan's has remained stubbornly dominated by physical media. The following examines exactly why this phenomenon has occurred (that is, why physical media still sells well in Japan), why Digital means of acquiring music failed to catch on in Japan, and whether or not there is a possibility of Digital music returning to prominence over the next several years.
