Creative industries have their origin in individual creativity, skill and talent and that have a potential for wealth and job creation through the generation and exploitation of intellectual property. Creative industries encompass major segments including: artisanal products; visual arts; performing arts; cinema and audiovisual media; literature, books and publishing; and others.

The UNCTAD/UNDP classification of creative industries is divided into four broad groups: HERITAGE, ARTS, MEDIA, AND FUNCTIONAL CREATIONS, including creative services such as architectural, advertising, cultural and recreational, creative research and development (R&D), digital and other related creative services.
