According to MusicWatch, 56 percent of vinyl record purchasers are men, and almost half of purchasers are under 25 years old. The industry research company also found that 58 percent of vinyl buyers only purchase used records, versus 32 percent who only buy new ones.
Forbes reports that a recent eBay survey found that 52% of consumers prefer to buy music in a physical form such as CD or vinyl record to digital one. The demographic responsible for the comeback is actually 18-24 year olds, an interesting age group given that they likely grew up buying digital copies of music rather than physical ones, unlike older generations.
