U.S. wireless music services will have over 50 million users and generate more than a $1 billion dollars in revenue in 2010, just 5 years after appearing in late 2005, forecasts IDC. Wireless over-the-air (OTA) music services offer mobile phone users a convenient way to buy music and provide the music industry with an exciting new distribution channel. 

IDC expects music-enabled mobile phone shipments to reach nearly 60% of all handsets shipped in the U.S. by 2010.

Key drivers for future growth include music-enabled handset penetration, deployment of broadband wireless networks, increased marketing efforts, bundling and cross-promotion of various music-related services, and driving flat-rate pricing schemes.
