21.1 Film industry turnover, 1995-2012 Figure 21.1 shows the total turnover of the UK’s three main film industry sectors (film and video production, film and video distribution and film exhibition) for the period 1995-2012. (2012 is the latest year for which data are available.) Each of the three sectors has shown strong growth over this period, with total industry turnover increasing from £2 billion in 1995 to over £7 billion in 2012. However, for 2009, 2011 and 2012 the turnover for film and video distribution includes only film distribution as the data for video distribution are confidential. The chart shows that turnover for film distribution decreased significantly from £2.6 billion in 2011 to £1.8 billion in 2012 but, according to the Office for National Statistics, this is mainly due to the restructuring of some businesses and the resultant changes to their industrial classifications. The reclassifications are contained within the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) 5913 (film, video and TV programme distribution), and turnover for this class as a whole has increased from £3 billion in 2011 to £3.5 billion in 2012. (For both video distribution and TV programme distribution, the latter of which is not included in our analysis, the turnover figures are confidential in 2009, 2011 and 2012.) For more on the classifications, see Chapter 20.

Standard Industrial Classifications (SICs) are used to classify businesses according to the type of their economic activity. The classifications were last revised in 2003 and in 2007. For 1995-2007 data are for 2003 SICs 9211 (film and video production), 9212 (film and video distribution) and 9213 (film exhibition). For 2008 onwards, we define film and video production as the sum of 2007 SICs 59111 (film production), 59112 (video production) and 5912 (film, video and TV post-production), film and video distribution is the sum of 59131 (film distribution) and 59132 (video distribution) and film exhibition is 5914 (film exhibition). For 2008 both film distribution and video distribution are suppressed by the ONS as confidential. The figure shown for the sum of the two is the 4-digit class total (5913) minus TV distribution (59133). For 2009, 2011 and 2012, only film is included in the distribution sector as the data for video distribution are confidential. The figures for 2011 have been revised since publication of the 2013 edition of the Yearbook.
