Sector Profile - Music

The vibrant expression of the Jamaican spirit is captured in the music, which has given the world some of the greatest artistes, producers and sound engineers. As the capital of reggae, Jamaica is home to a multi-billion dollar industry that enjoys great global demand and has influenced many of the major international musical movements. 

Jamaica’s prospects for development and investment are strong in the music industry, which has a global value of over US$130 million according to the International Federation the Phonographic Industry (IFPI). Music is produced at a prolific rate in Jamaica, and the country boasts the largest number of recording studios per square mile worldwide. Many of the studios are outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment and are operated by highly skilled personnel.

The Government is keen on improving the sector, and has been supporting the Jamaica Reggae Industry Association (JaRIA) and the implementation of the Voluntary Copyright Registration System to protect intellectual property rights.
