Scottish film industry projected to grow to £1 billion by 2030 - Perthshire Chamber of Commerce

Scottish film industry projected to grow to £1 billion by 2030

Screen Scotland has published a study showing the value of Scotland’s film and TV industries to the country’s employment and economic prosperity, projecting that the industry will grow to £1 billion by 2030.

Commissioned by Screen Scotland and produced by Saffery Champness and Nordicity, the new independent report finds that the screen sector in Scotland contributed £567.6 million to Scotland’s economy in 2019, providing 10,280 full time equivalent jobs.

The wide-ranging study analyses the economic contribution of the screen sector value chain - film and TV development and production, animation, VFX and post-production, film and TV distribution, TV broadcast, film exhibition - and extends into the supply chains that provide services at each stage of the content process, including facilities, equipment, transport, catering and accommodation.

Beyond that direct supply chain, the study looks at where the screen sector stimulates economic activity elsewhere in the Scottish economy: screen tourism, the education and training sectors and infrastructure.
