Sector manufacturero europeo

Specialisations within EU manufacturing. Statistics in focus. Industry, trade and services 62/2009. The EU-27 manufacturing sector generated EUR 1 711 billion of value added in 2006 and employed 34 million persons, according to Structural Business Statistics (SBS). This was equivalent to 30 % of the value added and 27 % of the employment in the non-financial business economy (NACE Sections C to I and K).

Specialisations within the EU's non-financial services sector. Statistics in focus. Industry, trade and services 61/2009. The EU-27 non-financial services sector employed approximately 79 million persons, close to two thirds of the non-financial business economy's workforce. The non-financial services sector as a whole is characterised by a predominance of small enterprises, although large enterprises generated a proportionately large share of value added within the air transport and post and telecommunications subsectors. The non-financial services sector's turnover in the EU-27 increased on average by 5.3 % per annum between 2000 and 2007, while employ¬ment grew by 1.9 % per annum. At the NACE division level, the fastest turnover growth between 2000 and 2008 was observed for the EU-27 water transport sector, while the weakest growth was recorded for hotels and restaurants.  [+]
Features of International Sourcing in Europe in 2001-2006. Statistics in focus. Industry, trade and services 73/2009. International Sourcing as a business model is becoming more popular as resident enterprises move abroad their core and support business functions that were performed in-house or domestically sourced. This publication analyses what type of international sourcing is most common as well as the impact on employment. A survey carried out by twelve countries on enterprises engaged in international sourcing during the 2001-2006 period showed that insourcing, i.e. moving business functions abroad but within the same enterprise group is the most common type of international sourcing. Its perceived impact on competitiveness, costs reduction and access to new markets is positive, although more enterprises expect moving jobs abroad rather than creating new jobs domestically as a result of future international sourcing. [+]

SMEs were the main drivers of economic growth between 2004 and 2006. Statistics in focus. Industry, trade and services 71/2009 The non-financial business economy of the EU (NACE Rev. 1.1 sections C to I and K) witnessed quite substantial growth between 2004 and 2006. Excluding ‘mining and quarrying’ (section C), value added at factor cost rose by 11.6% to reach 5.6 trillion euros. The number of persons employed rose by 4.3% and in 2006 was close to 130 million. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), which are defined as firms employing between 1 and 249 persons, are often referred to as the backbone of the European economy, providing a significant source of jobs and economic growth. They were indeed the main contributor to growth between 2004 and 2006 as this publication shows. [+]

Demografía empresarial en Europa

Business Demography: employment and survival. Statistics in focus. Industry, trade and services 70/2009. This publication examines the effects of enterprise births and deaths on employment and the development of employment in the first five years after enterprise birth. Birth and death rates are usually substantially higher than the respective share of the observed enterprises in employment, because they are smaller on average than the whole population of active enterprises. Survival rates of newly born enterprises change insignificantly during the first five years. Results do not confirm the assumption that the likelihood to survive increases with the age of the enterprise in the first five years. Employment data for enterprises newly born in 2001 are examined more closely in nine Member States. In five of them the employment growth in enterprises surviving to 2006 compensated the job losses in enterprises that did not survive. [+]
