Figures on SMEs: Total revenue

The Swiss industry's total revenue has returned to growth, after suffering a plunge during the coronavirus pandemic in 2020.

Despite increasing international competition and the pressure of the strong franc, the secondary sector has recovered since the outbreak of the 2020 health crisis. Its turnover has reached new heights this year, an encouraging result for companies in the sector.
