In the spotlight: Gains in per capita disposable income and consumer spending are anticipated to fuel industry revenue growth


Performers & Creative Artists in the US
As part of the entertainment sector, Performers and Creative Artists industry performance is affected by per capita disposable income, which determines consumers’ ability to spend on nonessential services or goods, including art. Industry performance is also influenced by grant-making institutions (e.g. nonprofit foundations, state and local arts commissions and the National Endowment for the Arts), which fund many of the industry’s small-scale operators. Federal funding for creative arts is expected to decrease over the five years to 2019, which is expected to hamper demand for industry operators’ services. Steady growth is expected to continue over the five years to 2024, as consumers’ discretionary spending increases and the number of households with above-average income, the segment that is most likely to donate to art foundations, rises. However, external competition from other forms of entertainment and falling support for public arts departments and commissions at the state and federal levels are projected to hinder revenue growth.
