Figures on SMEs: Total revenue

Swiss industry total revenue continues to grow after experiencing a drop during the 2008 financial crisis.

Despite increasing international competition and pressure from Frankfurt, the secondary sector has recovered since the financial crisis began in 2008. Its total revenue exceeded its 2007 level, an encouraging result for companies in the sector.

Currently, the FSO does not count all branches in the tertiary sector and, therefore, does not have an overall index of the total revenue for this sector. However, changes in retail are followed on a monthly basis at this address: Retail Trade Turnover statistics.
