Music Industries Association

The trade body for the UK Musical Instrument Industry.


The Music Industries Association is a UK trade association, the only one servicing and representing the interests of all UK businesses selling musical instruments and associated products. Manufacturers, importers, publishers, retailers and supporting businesses (i.e. music media) all come within our scope. Together we undertake activities to stimulate our market and make the industry’s views and needs known and appreciated in Whitehall, Westminster and Brussels. All activities are focussed towards our mission:


The MIA is recognised by the UK Government as being the "lead body" for our industry. This means we are consulted by the Department of Trade and Industry before legislation, which might impact on the businesses of our members, is enacted. MIA represents its members’ views to government as being "The Voice" of our sector and influences the business climate in which we all work.
