Future of the Creative Industries: The BREXIT and its consequences in Europe

  • More about the topic

    The creative industries ...

    in North Rhine-Westphalia are a considerable economic factor: in 2015 about 300,000 employees and around 51,600 companies achieved sales of € 26bn – not only in North Rhine-Westphalia but in international markets as well.

    The UNESCO global report “Advancing creativity for employment” , just published in 2017, points out that from 2013 to 2014 alone the value of the global exports of creative industries increased from $212.8bn to $253.2bn. Whether film, music, literature, design, visual and performing arts and architecture as well – these were always in demand internationally, but for about 5 years now digitisation of the creative industries has brought about a demand and a global range that have never been experienced before: whether via digital platforms that claim, for example, to make music, films and games available at anytime and anywhere on mobile phones, whether through a new international logistics system that delivers products from all over the world practically overnight, or through intangible services in design and software, whose markets with a speed of 100 Mbps are local and at the same time international in any moment. How and where do the creative industries in North Rhine-Westphalia stand in this global competition – today and in ten years?

    These questions are becoming more urgent and relevant from day to day, not least because of Brexit, which will come into force in March 2019. However, the monitoring report from the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy on the creative industries  published in December 2017 raises questions of an even more fundamental nature, because: in 2015, the export share of Germany’s economy as a whole was 20.2% of average industry sales, that of the creative industries was 3.8%.

    This statistic seems to be in obvious contradiction to the international self-image and to the digital range of the creative industries.

    It is high time to place the international framework conditions for the creative industries on the agenda and to make both the opportunities and the risks for local companies more tangible and more designable – including, but not only, because of Brexit. Because the structural weakness of the creative industries with regard to exports certainly demands business and political strategies beyond Brexit.
