Spotify claims to have a market share of 86 percent in the Netherlands. Spotify manager Will Page gave the figures from GfK's Trends in Digital Entertainment report at the FastForward conference. Over a third (38%) of respondents in the December 2015 survey by GfK said they use one or more streaming music services, up from 36 percent six months earlier and 35 percent in December 2014. Of those, 86 percent said they use Spotify. Apple Music was used by 9 percent, more than Deezer or Google Play.
