British music continues to be a global success story, renowned for consistently producing quality acts that can break across the most competitive international territories and sell in markets right across the world.


Not only is the UK the second largest source of repertoire in the US but itself is also one of the biggest music markets in the world – alongside the US, Japan and Germany.

BPI has a central role in promoting British music abroad and works hard to open doors into overseas markets for all its member companies. 

One way of doing this is via a series of international trade missions and the support of popular industry trade events, all specifically designed to assist member labels to develop their business overseas and source new opportunities in building international revenues.
