    As festivals and special events

    Does this "as" mean "incremental change" or "because"? It seems both.

    ex)To be a fireworks artist, you need good chemical knowledge...As festivals and special events are becoming more popular, the future of this job is bright. How about making the sky your canvas?

    With the particular words used after it, I would say that in this case it means "because". However, if it had said "As festivals and special events become (not "are becoming") more popular ..." I would say that "As" means "At the time that".
