2021 Accessory Report
First ever detailed analysis of music accessory market

This first-ever report presents three years of data on U.S. retail and wholesale volumes for all key musical instrument and audio accessories that collectively accounted for over $1.0 billion in retail sales in 2020. The report tracks the sales of fretted and bowed instrument strings, straps, sticks, headphones, cables, stands, cases, and a variety of other small goods retailing for $100 or less. Historically, accessories have been the music industry’s most consistent sales performer, largely immune to economic factors. However, the predictability of the market was rocked in 2020 by the COVID pandemic, which caused a 9% year over year sales decline. The data presented in this report tracks shipments by manufacturers and distributors to retailers, not retail sell-through.

The Accessory Market Report, which comes in a PDF and supporting Excel document, includes the following data for the categories listed below (2020 Retail Sales, 2020 Wholesale Sales, % Change; 2019 Retail Sales, 2020 Wholesale Sales, % Change; 2018 Retail Sales, 2020 Wholesale Sales, Top Selling Brands)
