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.
Detailed data on the total revenue of each branch of the secondary sector is available on the FSO site: Statistics for Industry and services: Production, Orders, Turnover (FSO).
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.
Secondary and tertiary sectors: Definitions
The secondary sector covers extractive and manufacturing industries, production and distribution of electricity, gas and water, and construction. The tertiary sector covers services such as retail trade, wholesale trade, restaurants and even telecommunications.
