Although the music industry has languished from sluggish sales over the last half decade, consumer trends have demonstrated that holiday music is immune to the recession year after year, according to a report in Htrnews.

About one-fifth of music sales, including Christmas music, takes place in the last six weeks of the year. In 2010, that totaled more than 71 million albums during the season, the news source said.

"Every year there's that great new holiday album people want to make sure they've got it in their house," said Dave Bakula, vice president, analytics entertainment for Nielsen, as quoted by Htrnews. "But it never really matters if there's any better release one year or another; the demand is there every year. Whether it's gift-giving or the need to have the music of the season on, it seems to be more resilient than the music industry as a whole."

For established artists, one holiday album gives them a chance to re-enter the album sales charts every year, while newer performers have an opportunity for greater exposure.

If the number of tech reviews in the media during the holidays is any indication, smartphones and other devices to store and play music are also popular during this time of year.

All smartphones are now equipped with music players and capable of hosting music-downloading apps, according to a recent article published in Wired.
