The phonograph disc record was the primary medium used for music reproduction until late in the 20th century. It had co-existed with the phonoghraph cilinder from the late 1880s and replaced it by the late 1920s. Records retained the largest market share even when new formats such as CD were mass-marketed. By the late 1980s, digital media, in the form of the CD, had gained a larger market share, and the vinyl record left the mainstream in 1991. From the 1990s to the 2010s, records continued to be manufactured and sold on a much smaller scale, and were especially used by disc jockeys (DJ)s, released by artists in some genres, and listened to by a noche market of audiophiles. The phonograph record has made a niche resurgence in the early 21st century – 9.2 million records were sold in the U.S. in 2014, a 260% increase since 2009. Likewise, in the UK sales have increased five-fold from 2009 to 2014.
