    Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

    The Fine Arts Schools industry has fared well over the five years to 2017. Rising levels of per capita disposable income have allowed an increasing number of US consumers to make discretionary expenses on fine arts courses while the growth of corporate profitability has enabled major corporations to make significant donations to institutions within this industry. Moreover, many industry institutions have benefited from a steady increase in the number of primary and postsecondary school-aged children demanding fine arts courses for recreation and education. However, industry growth has been somewhat constrained by a decline in the level of federal funding for the creative arts, which caused industry profit margins to stagnant during the five-year period.
