Mobile music revenue in the U.S. from 2005 to 2018

The statistic above provides data on mobile music revenue in the United States from 2005 to 2018. In 2018, mobile music revenue amounted to 24.9 million U.S. dollars, down from 35.5 million a year earlier, partially due to RIAA's reclassification of the "mobile music revenue" category to only include ringbacks and ringtones in 2013, and exclude the previous component revenues from music videos, full-length downloads, and other mobile material from this category.
