Engine of success - the German SME sector in focus

The researchers of Institut für Mittelstandsforschung (IfM) Bonn analysed and evaluated German mid market companies with an annual revenue of EUR 20 million up to EUR 1 billion. The study is conducted on commission of GE Capital Deutschland.

In 2015 a total of app. 40.000 companies in Germany met these criteria. Although this equates about 1.1% of all private companies, they generated 38% of Germany’s total economic output and employed 32% of all employees within the private sector.

The current study focusses on Innovation and Diversity in Geman mid markets. Furthermore the results are linked to mid markets in UK, France and Italy.
