French cultural sector generates €40 billion in value-added

By the numbers
October 16, 2013

A study carried out by the French Ministry of Culture measures the contribution made by the cultural industries to the country’s economy. 

In 2011, all the cultural industries combined (audiovisual, performing arts, publishing and press, advertising agencies, architecture, visual arts, and cultural heritage and education) generated €85 billion in revenues, and €40 billion in value-added. This represents 2.2% of the total value-added of all sectors in France. This figure does not take into account the indirect influence that culture has on other economic activities.
