If you look at the figures that ERA ( Entertainment Retailers Association) put out. The percentage change in unit sales 2007/2008 for music is down 1.9% to 88m units, however the the retail value is down by 6.9%. Video unit sales 2007/2008 are up 3.8% and retail value is only up 0.1%.

Downloads now account for 96% of singles sales (by volume) and as at December 2008 7% of album sales

One recent EU funded project on this topic was known by the codename "EUROPART". Within this project triazines and other compounds were studied as potential extraction agents
