Creative Industries Added £115bn of Value in 2019

The UK creative industries contributed £115.9bn of Gross Value Added in 2019, according to provisional estimates from the Department of Digital, Culture, Media & Sport.

The figures represented an increase in GVA for these industries of 5.6 per cent over the previous year and mean creative industries accounted for just under 6 per cent of total GVA in the UK in 2019. Between 2010 and 2019, the creative industries increased this GVA metric by 43.6 per cent in real terms.

The DCMS sectors covered in this data are civil society, creative industries, cultural sector, digital sector, gambling, sport, telecoms, sport, and tourism. Since 2010, the creative industries have accounted for more than 71 per cent of the growth in GVA across all these sectors.

However, the figures do not cover the period in which the COVID-19 has brought disruption to creative organisations, shutting down music venues, theatres, museums, and - for a time - TV and film productions.
