As the COVID-19 pandemic swept the globe, regions adopted varying lockdown measures to uphold public health initiatives that also affected local businesses, including the vinyl community. However, Discogs data shows that music fans and record stores continue to be resilient, active, and enthusiastic. During this time, Discogs became an online haven for sellers and buyers across the consumer music economy. In the first half of 2020, the Marketplace experienced a 30% increase in global sales of physical recorded music compared to the year before. Independent record stores are always open for business on Discogs.
