Chapter 20 Enterprise and industrial policy Creative Industries
Value of the Iceland’s creative economy 20% of the just over 7,000 companies and self-employed individuals in creative industries accounted for more than 95% of the sector’s total turnover. The creative industries’ export revenues amounted to approximately ISK 24 billion, or about 3% of Iceland’s total export earnings. The sector’s fastest-growing segment has been video game sales, a trend also seen overseas. The state and municipal share in creative industries’ total turnover is about 12.5%.
Value of the Iceland’s creative economy The creative industries’ turnover has remained fairly constant despite the general economic downturn. Government turnover in cultural and media activities has remained virtually flat, while government revenue from such activities has risen in relative terms. Figures reflect Iceland’s economic collapse in 2008 Reports from other Nordic countries and Europe have pointed out that the creative industries are the fastest growing sector.

Next steps in research in the field of Creative Industries An assessment of the creative industries’ support system will be carried out in the next few months The assessment will give a clearer picture of the operating conditions of companies and self-employed individuals in the sector. The value added of the creative industries needs to be studied because value added figures provide a far clearer picture than turnover of the creative industries’ contribution to society. Report is due in the end of October 2011
