Spotify retains its leading position in the music streaming platform sector, but the competition has nothing to be ashamed of.

25% of Spotify users live in the USA

The figure of 32.6 million subscribers places Apple second behind Spotify, which dominates the market with 44.4 million users in the USA. Knowing that the platform announces 210 million subscribers worldwide, the United States thus represents 25% of all Spotify users.
