Although being one of the oldest media, radio continues to experience a positive momentum in many countries, and is showing resilience despite the surge of online. Radio, which is a predominantly a live linear broadcast flow of curated music and speech, also represents an important part of the growing audio market, which comprises on-demand music streaming services (such as Spotify, Apple Music or Deezer), podcasts and audiobooks. Innovations in audio, such as personalized digital audio advertising, the rise of voice AI assistants like Alexa, Siri or Google Home are providing opportunities for new entrants as well as incumbent radio networks. Historically, the radio industry has developed differently in all regions of the world. In the USA and Latin America, radio is essentially commercial. In Europe, public radio broadcasters capture in most countries the lion’s share of available resources and audience. Until today, streaming audio and radio have evolved in parallele worlds, but the same trend already observed in the TV industry, coping with the SVOD emergence, could also disrupt the radio industry, as shown through the example of Spotify, which added radio news in music playlists, as well as a large choice of podcasts and shows.

The radio market in France

Radio in France remains a mass media, predominantly national, which has resources of more than €1.3 billion. Strong radios groups dominate the market, whether they are commercial, like NRJ, M6, Lagardère or Altice (known as NextRadioTV, RMC), or public like Radio France. Radio is above all seen as the medium of music and information in the French public opinion. It is also the first morning media in France, largely ahead of television and the Internet. Besides, the Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB/DAB+) network has just started and is only covering six of the main cities in France, while the coverage reaches only 25% of the population in 2020. Due to the outbreak of the COVID-19, nationwide DAB+ launches have been postponed to 2021. Finally, digital radio advertising revenues, which combine both website and podcast revenues, have become more and more important in the total revenues of radio groups in recent years. Digital radio revenues have reached 9.4% of the total radio advertising revenues in France in 2020.
