Research commissioned by Google and conducted by the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) estimates that the UK’s online sector is worth £100bn a year, and is growing at 10% a year. This industry is calculated to provide work for 250,000 people, many of them contractors, and that figure is only set to grow. The report highlights that the online contribution to the UK’s economy is greater than the utilities sector, construction and transport and could grow to 10% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), which will fuel ongoing demand for contractors in IT and new media as well as other related sectors.
