  • The “Art Market”“How big is the global art market? A new report from The European Fine ArtFoundation (TEFAF), released in conjunction with the current TEFAF Maastricht art fair, Mar.16-25, 2012, sets the total size of the global art market at €46.1 billion, or about $60.8 billion(€1 = $1.32) for 2011. According to economist Clare McAndrew, who conducted thestudy, the €46.1 billion figure includes both public auction data, which was supplied by ourvery own Artnet Database, and an estimate of art gallery and private art dealer sales, whichis based on polls of over 6,500 dealers around the world as well as interviews with asomewhat smaller number.By way of comparison, the art market total is just about one-twelfth of the U.S. militarybudget for 2011, which was $739.3 billion, according to the Institute for Strategic Studies.In McAndrew’s estimation, the $60.8 billion is about equally split between auctions andcommercial gallery sales. Take the auction half first -- the global art-auction total for 2011was €23.1 billion ($30.5 billion). Total auction sales at both Sotheby’s and arch-rival Christie’s are put at $5.7 billion each for 2011, which adds up to $11.4 billion, or about35 percent of the global auction art trade.”Source: Artnet8
