Operators in the Libraries, Museums and Cultural Activities industry are predominantly not-for-profit organisations that provide the public with access to culturally important objects, knowledge and sites. Many operators rely on government funding for a large portion of their income, which can come from grants, local council funding or other sources. The government's efforts to rein in the budget deficit have brought sharp cuts to arts and culture. This has significantly reduced the amount of money granted to national museums and made it more difficult for many small museums, galleries and historical sites to survive.
This industry is comprised of libraries, archives, museums, art galleries, historical sites and buildings, and botanical and zoological gardens.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
