5G and the Creative Industries.
Creative Industries are – and always will be – a backbone of the world’s communities and economies. Nowhere is this truer than in the UK, where our Creative Industries are not only considered among the world’s very best, they’re also essential to our economy.
In 2019 alone, Creative Industries contributed £115.9bn of value to the UK economy, according to the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport. That’s greater than the automotive, aerospace, life sciences and oil and gas industries combined.
But this vital UK industry is under pressure from rising expectations and ever shrinking budgets. Plus a strong desire, and need, to embrace more sustainable ways of working and ensure they can engage diverse audiences.
As a result, creative businesses are eager to explore new, innovative methods of delivering content and experiences, to keep up with rapidly evolving audience demands and remain competitive.
5G could be the answer.
As an industry that was experiencing (pre-pandemic) growth at 4x the rate of the UK economy, it’s clear there are opportunities for creative businesses to lead the way in 5G adoption. In fact, many are already doing just that, exploring the innovative ways they can harness 5G.
But more help is needed to open up 5G opportunities for this industry so its true potential can be unlocked. Now more than ever, the UK’s Creative Industries need investment, partnership, and knowledge to empower them on their journey to delivering more immersive, personalised, and accessible content afforded by 5G.
UK5G is here to help the UK's creative businesses - big and small - understand exactly what 5G can do, and how to make the most of it.
