The future is bright, and the creative industries have the potential to drive significant growth over the next decade. Since 2011 the rate of employment in the creative industries has grown by 30% - three times the national average - to over 2 million jobs. In addition, over 1 million people are employed in creative roles outside the creative industries. This growth in employment shows no sign of slowing down. Demand for creative jobs is estimated to increase by 30%–40% by 2030.
