Podcast company ACAST is reporting a net sales growth of 130% for Q2 2021 compared to the same time last year.
CEO Ross Adams says: “During the quarter we welcomed thousands of new shows to our network, taking the total number of shows to more than 31,000 by the end of June.
“Our net sales growth was a strong 130% and it is great to see how all our markets are contributing. Europe delivered 174% net sales growth in Q2-21 versus Q2-20, Americas 65%, and Other markets 79%.”
The 79% growth in ‘Other’ markets is mainly driven by growth in Australia.
Listens also improved, reaching 880M, a 26% growth on the same time last year.
