The UK’s digital sectors are a group of 12 industries that produce or intensively use digital goods and services. They account for 16 per cent of domestic output, 10 per cent of employment, and 24 per cent of exports. The digital sectors embody many of the aspects of modern day value chains: the close intertwining of manufacturing and services, and the heavy reliance on skills and knowledge-based inputs.
In this report prepared by Frontier Economics for Tech UK, we consider the impacts of Brexit for the UK tech sector and the policy priorities that arise from these.
