If you are going to sell them in any commercial place, yes. Some CD replicators/duplicators will ONLY do it if you have a bar code.

You heard right, CD sales are WAY down. Most people are streaming their music through one of the many services available (Apple Music, Spotify, etc).
A band I went to see Saturday night is offering 14 of their albums on a single USB stick for $30 - they are well aware that many people don't even have a way to play CDs any longer. Most new cars are not coming with a player, new computers don't come with one... Believe it or not, you can get limited vinyl album runs down now - but its really an audiophile thing, not for the 'normal' person.

2-3 months is not unrealistic, if you have done the prep work ahead of time - booking studio time, getting the album artwork finished (or at least requested), looked at all your studio/mastering/duplication/distribution options and decided on which ones you are going to use.
