2016 worldwide figures generally follow the USA trends but are not precisely comparable.
Worldwide figures ( source:IFPI), show physical formats continuing to decline and comprising 39% of revenue. Downloads still slightly exceed streaming (20% and 19% respectively). The remainder being made up of performance rights etc.
I think it is true to say that there must be large markets where physical formats have dominance and where downloading is comparatively uncommon and where streaming has yet to make a mark or even a start ( presumably the Far East).
High resolution formats are not shown separately in the general IFPI summary of 2016 but may be so in the Global Report , but that costs more than I am prepared to pay to enable a comment on AA ;-). I am willing to guess that they will form a minor contribution.
It is also easy to overlook the fact that fast internet connections are not universally available even in a highy developed country like my own.
