Is there any quantifiable way of determining if indie record sales have declined in the past 4 years?

I've been researching trends in major label record sales lately. On a constant exchange rate basis, global major label record sales have declined $6.2 billion (U.S.), or 16.3 percent, since 1999. But what I can't seem to find any information on is the fate of the independent record industry. Is there any quantifiable way of determining if indie record sales have declined in the past 4 years as well?
