Creative industries contribution to economy leaps by £7bn in 2016

The creative industries made a record contribution to the economy in 2016.

According to  Govenment statistics industries including advertising, marketing, arts, film, TV, radio, museums and galleries are part of a sector  worth almost £92bn.

The creative industries’ contribution to the UK is up from £85bn in 2015 and it is growing at twice the rate of the economy. The sector now makes up more than five per cent of the UK economy’s GVA. Much of the increase has been driven by a boom in the computer services sub-sector. While this includes video games, it also covers wider digital industries.
