Arts and entertainment industry in eu, europe trade portalThe Arts & Entertainment Industry: a very potential industrial activity in the EU, larger than wholesale and retail trade of motor vehicles, for instance!

In 2015, there were 1.2 million cultural enterprises in the EU, generating €200 billion of value added. In 2015, in terms of number of enterprises, the sector architecture, design and photography’ was the most important in the EU; in terms of value added, it was the audiovisual sector. In 2015, 80 % of people employed in the cultural sector in the EU worked in a small or medium-sized enterprise. In the EU overall, in 2015, around 1.2 million market-oriented businesses were recorded as belonging to a cultural sector as identified in SBS data (i.e. NACE divisions 90 and 91 not included). Representing 5 % of all enterprises in the non-financial business economy (NACE divisions B to N except K, and S95), cultural businesses accounted for 2.8 % of total Value added in the EU, or around EUR 200 billion. For the sake of comparison, this figure is higher than that for wholesale and retail trade and repair of motor vehicles and motorcycles (NACE G45, EUR 165 billion). The cultural sector’s turnover (the total value of market sales of goods and services) was around EUR 475 billion, which represented 1.7 % of the total turnover of the non-financial business economy.

In 2012  EU car trade with the rest of the world generated a surplus of €78 billion. The sector employs more than 2 million persons. In 2011, despite the recovery being reflected in a 5% increase in 2011 EU aggregate turnover relative to that of 2008, enterprises manufacturing parts and accessories for motor vehicles had returned to 2008 turnover levels in only 16 of 24 countries. Total turnover in the EU during those years went from €202 billion in 2008 down to €152 bn in 2009, and back up to €189 bn in 2010 and €211 bn in 2011.

Europe’s economy continued to gain ground in 2015, with GDP across the euro zone picking up to 1.5% in 2015 from a weak 0.9% the previous year.  In the absence of registration figures or consistent boat sales data for Europe we view data on new car sales as a proxy of relative demand for big-ticket purchases. In 2015, all but two countries posted growth across the EU28 region (plus Norway, Switzerland and Iceland).  New passenger car sales for the combined region were up 9.2% to 13 million units.  Particularly notable was the double-digit recovery in previously weak markets, with Spain up 21%, Italy up 16% and France up nearly 12.5%. Results from leading boatbuilders indicate that European boat sales began to follow the upward trends in the auto market in 2015.  Brunswick Corporation reported its marine revenues in Europe up 13% for the year, with growth driven by boats under 30 feet.  The company’s biggest European markets for the year were Scandinavia, France, Italy and Germany.  The Bénéteau Group confirmed a strong showing in Europe as well, where the builder generated 48% of its boat revenues, noting “particularly good” sales in France, Germany, Spain and Italy.  Similarly, Azimut-Benetti reported a 10% increase for its 2015 financial year to €650 million, with market share gains in Europe, especially with new models in the sub50ft category.

Computers, Software & Electronics Export Trade EU European UnionAction Plan for Electronics Industry in Europe

Since 2013, the European Commission (EC) has launched a number of initiatives to support Electronics Strategy for Europe. In 2014, the Electronics Leaders Group (ELG) submitted the Implementation Plan of the European Industrial Strategic Roadmap. This plan engages the whole electronics value chain, including those industries that depend on digital components and systems. At the core of the strategy is also the creation of ECSEL, a Joint Technology Initiative (JTI) for electronics in Europe, to combine resources at project level in support of crossborder industry-academia collaborative R&D&I. Over time, this series of initiatives have been taken, without a fixed plan having been crafted. This strategy should facilitate industry investments of 100 billion euros, allow for flexibility, and help create 250,000 jobs in Europe up to 2020. View for further information >>>

Business Opportunities in construction in the EU European UnionOpportunities in construction, jobs, products and raw materials

In the European Union, the construction sector is of great importance. It provides around 18 million direct jobs and amounted to 8.6 % of EU’s total GDP in 2016. At the same time, creating innovative solutions for social, climate and energy challenges we face today. Total 42.9 million workers in Europe depend, directly or indirectly, on the construction sector. Overall, European Union’s internal market provides international partners access to more than 500 million people and approximately 13 trillion Euro in GDP.

Construction, jobs, products and raw materials:
Up to 95% of construction, architecture, and civil engineering firms are micro-enterprises or small and medium-sized enterprise (SMES). Initiatives in EU countries on energy efficiency have a significant potential for job creation and product supply in this sector. Another approach used to create jobs is the promotion of apprenticeships in the construction industry.
Construction and other sectors: As a major consumer of services and intermediate products such as raw materials, chemicals or electrical equipment, construction impacts many other economic sectors.

EDUCATION AND TRAINING MARKETING OPPORTUNITIES IN THE EUEducation and training are crucial for both economic and social progress, and aligning skills with labour market needs plays a key role in this. By the same token, under its Europe 2020 strategy to respond to the economic crisis, the EU set targets to bring the number of early school-leavers down to below 10% and increase the share of graduates from tertiary education to at least 40% by 2020. New industrial developments are demanding new technical skills. There will be a number of new jobs and tasks in industry that are not known presently. More engineers will be needed, in particular in fields like robotics, cyber security, software and hardware integration. The strong presence of technical and practical skills in educational programs will need to be updated and upgraded in order to accommodate contents to the new digital era. Additionally, education and training systems will face the growing challenge of integrating technical, analytical and soft skills training, to promote professionals capable of systemic thinking with an entrepreneurial mindset. Programming and coding skills will be increasingly high in demand in many industrial jobs. LIST YOUR BUSINESS OR SERVICES IN THIS CATEGORY HERE

In 2014, more than 11,000 patent applications were filed with the European Patent Office (EPO) in the field of medical technology (7% of the total number of applications), more than any other sector in Europe.

Market Opportunity Tips
Provide health-care products that are especially useful in the care for elderly patients. Consider developing an offer that will place more emphasis on telehealth and home diagnostics products. In addition to offering diagnostic devices, consider providing repair services for endoscopy devices. The German repair market for endoscopy devices can be an interesting target market, as it is the largest market in Europe by a long way. As advanced diagnostics requires very high investments, consider investing in the supporting products for diagnostic tools. This can involve a wide range of products; for example, tailor-made sterilisation cages for the sterilisation of expensive equipment such as endoscopes.
