The Creative Industries in London

Source: GLA Economics (UK)

From Executive Summary:

The aim of this report is to provide evidence of the value of the creative industries in London, and the impact that they have on London’s economy. The report follows on from previous work which highlighted the importance of the creative industries in terms of employment and output as well as looking at the spatial incidence of the creative industries across London. This report provides our latest understanding on all these issues.

The creative industries continue to represent a significant part of London’s economy as well as the creative industries for the UK as a whole. In 2012, output (measured as Gross Value Added (GVA)) of the creative industries in London was estimated at £34.6 billion, accounting for just under half (47.6 per cent) of the UK total (£72.7 billion); the creative industries group contributed 10.7 per cent of total GVA in London. Over the post-recessionary period (2009-2012), the creative industries showed relatively higher growth than London’s economy as a whole.
