CD Replication UK Services Booming

CD replication UK services are still a booming market despite the demise of some large pressing plants over the last few years. Yes the demand for physical album sales may have declined but the number of self financed bands releasing CD albums is certainly on the increase. Replication for the larger record labels was usually in the tens of thousands of units required but more recently the average CD order has fallen to 1000 more commonly.

Although average CD replication orders in the UK are are now for 1000 units there are a lot more labels and self funded bands releasing albums so the the total number of CD’s replicated each year has not declined that much. Traditionally pressing plants had a limited number of customers but high volumes per customer. We are now seeing a lot wider range of customers albeit smaller volume orders.

Most of the replication plants in the UK regularly work to maximum capacity and therefore many CD duplication and brokerage companies choose to sub contract work out to overseas plants. By forging business links with overseas plants the customer does benefit from reduced leadtimes and often cheaper CD replication prices. In many cases it is cheaper and faster to order discs through a plant on the other side of the globe than more locally in Europe.
