The slow and steady resurrection of vinyl records

Vinyl Records Grow in Popularity

I found this interesting infographic by Vnylst which shows the 19 year rise in record sales. In the mid-90′s and mid-00′s there were some pretty heavy declines in sales, but since last year you can see there was a 17% increase in sales. Sure, it’s still a niche market, but it’s interesting to see that vinyl is starting to make it’s way back to relevancy. What’s the cause of this rise? Not sure, but we could probably guess that it has to do with DJ culture and not Justin Bieber fans.
