While Consumers Use New Streaming Services, They Want AM/FM Radio To Remain The Same; Over 9 In 10 Want The Way They Operate Their Car Radio to Remain Unchanged, And Would Not Want It Changed Into a Dashboard App
In the Car, CD Usage is Over Three Times That of Largest Digital Music Service
March 2, 2015 New York, NY A research study conducted by Ipsos, a leading global independent market research company, makes it clear that AM/FM radio remains the overwhelmingly preferred audio entertainment option in the car.
While consumers use new streaming services, virtually all consumers 99% -- are comfortable with the current AM/FM in-car radio operation. And 91% of consumers say they prefer physical AM/FM radio buttons and controls built into the car dashboard, rather than AM/FM being an app that appears in the car's electronic interface (with only 9% saying they would want it changed into a dashboard app).
An additional eye-opening finding was that while AM/FM radio remains paramount in the car, consumers use their in-car CD player three and a half times as much as they use any digital music service.
The survey also detailed other facts highlighting the unparalleled importance to consumers of AM/FM radio in the car; the demand for digital services is increasing, but they are still behind AM/FM radio, the CD player and satellite radio:
Overall, this study makes it clear that in spite of consumers' love of apps and new digital products, they have a great attachment to their AM/FM radio and an overwhelming desire to keep its operation and function as it is," said Thomas Spinelli, Vice President of Ipsos MediaCT. "The in-car AM/FM radio is still a universally known audio platform and its ease of use, convenience, features and familiarity continue to make it a top consumer choice for in-car audio."
Spinelli added, "This study shows that the consumer isn't replacing existing services and products with new ones; instead, they want them all -- making the car even more music-enabled with a number of choices at any given time."
The study, conducted by Ipsos for iHeartMedia in January 2015, surveyed a nationally representative sample of 1036 adults 18+.
