Creating Growth: Measuring Cultural and Creative Markets in the European Union
EY, UK, December 2014, 51 pages
Commissioned by the European Grouping of Societies of Authors and Composers (GESAC), the business and accounting advice company EY has recently published a study on the economic value of cultural and creative industries in the European Union: books, newspapers and magazines, music, performing arts, television, cinema, radio, video games, visual arts, architecture and advertising. The study concludes that these industries are among the largest employers in the EU, that they have experienced sustained growth even through recession and that they play a key role in the digital economy as providers of much of its content, a fact that must be taken seriously when considering how to face copyright issues on the Internet.
The creative and cultural industries (CCIs) are well-placed to grow further in the future due to their role as forerunners in digital innovation.
