"In America" continues its series of in-depth analysis of significant issues and businesses with a look at the music instrument manufacturing market.
Generations of Americans have gained their first exposure to music and playing an instrument while participating in a school band. This experience, as portrayed in the venerable musical "The Music Man", is supported by a well-established base of manufacturers focusing on musical instruments. While many small companies compete in this market by specializing in higher-end and niche products, there is a high concentration in the market, with just 50 companies controlling more than 80 percent of industry revenue.
Host James Earl Jones takes a close look at the business of musical instruments in a new segment of "In America." This episode of the popular program will provide consumers with insights to how the market is performing and current trends affecting the industry.
Existing manufacturers provide a range of products, from string instruments to pianos, organs and electronic keyboards to woodwinds. Standard band instruments also include brass wind instruments and percussion instruments.
This session of "In America" includes interviews with industry leaders and executives from leading manufacturers, and the impact of new methods and technologies is discussed. The significance of early education in music and musical instruments is also explored during the program.
