Creative Industries Facts & Statistics

UK CREATIVE INDUSTRIES – VALUE

 

There is very little data on Somerset’s creative industries and the data that is available is old and does not take into consideration of the growth of digital services in the creative industries. Here we can get an overview of the sector and its impact on the economy. We have access to other data so do feel free to ask.

 

The Gross Value Added (GVA) of the UK creative industries was provisionally estimated at £101.5bn in 2017, equivalent to approximately £11.5m every hour. Since 2016, the GVA of the creative industries has increased by 7.1 per cent. Between 2010 and 2017, GVA rose by 53.1 per cent in the creative industries – much faster than the 29.7 per cent increase in the economy as a whole during the same period.
