Figures

On the survey date 31 December 2019, the 66 313 enterprises (+1.0% against the previous year) comprising industry and construction (Sections B to F of ÖNACE 2008) counted 1 016 040 persons employed (+1.9%). Of these, exactly 963 289 people (+1.9%) were employees (white collar workers, blue collar workers, apprentices and outworkers) for whom gross earnings (including gross special payments and gross redundancy payments) of €44.0 bn (+5.3%) were disbursed. In the 2019 year under review, the enterprises in the industry and construction sector achieved turnover of €303.2 bn (+1.0%). Of this amount, more than half (52.1% or €158.0 bn) was domestic turnover.

At the end of 2019, exactly 29 994 enterprises (+0.6% against the previous year) were counted in industry (Sections B to E of ÖNACE 2008), and they recorded a turnover of €249.5 bn (+0.0%).

The 36 319 enterprises (+1.3% against the previous year) in the construction sector (Section F of ÖNACE 2008) counted a total of 264 280 employees (+4.2%), who generated a total turnover of €53.7 bn (6.3%).

In line with the EU-harmonised concept, the enterprise is the principal survey unit and is used to present data concerning turnover and employed persons in particular. For certain other characteristics (e.g. production output, volume of work) and for the purposes of regionalised analysis, the establishment is also used as the unit of observation. The monthly short term statistics in industry and construction, which were introduced in 1996, constitute the basis for satisfying the EU Regulation concerning short term statistics on the one hand, and on the other are used to determine the national production of goods as per the EU Regulation on the establishment of a Community survey of industrial production. They thus serve as one of the main sources of information for assessing the economic development of Austria and the overall European economic and monetary area.

The accumulated annual results for the last three years can be found under “Table(s)”.

The highest turnover was realised in the ÖNACE divisions 35 (Electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply) with €43.5 bn, followed by the divisions 43 (Specialised construction activities) with €27.6 bn, 28 (Manufacture of machinery and equipment n.e.c.) with €25.9 bn, 29 (Manufacture of motor vehicles, trailers and semi-trailers) with €19.1 bn, 10 (Manufacture of food products) each with €18.8 bn, 24 (Manufacture of basic metals) with €17.2 bn, 41 (Construction of buildings) with €17.0 bn, 25 (Manufacture of fabricated metals products, except machinery and equipment) with €16.6 bn and 27 (Manufacture of electrical equipment) with €13.2 bn. These nine economic branches accounted almost two-thirds (198.9 bn or 65.6%) of all turnover generated by the entire industry and construction sector.

The sectors with the highest turnover generally also counted the most employees. ÖNACE division 43 (Specialised construction activities) employed the highest number of people, at 170 104. It was followed by divisions 28 (Manufacture of machinery and equipment n.e.c., 88 696), 25 (Manufacture of fabricated metal products, except machinery and equipment, 77 242) and 10 (Manufacture of food products, 75 825).

The sectors with the greatest increase in turnover (+14.4%) were ÖNACE divisions 30 (Manufacture of other transport equipment), followed by the divisions 21 (Manufacture of basic pharmaceutical products and pharmaceutical preparations; +12.6%), 38 (Waste collection, treatment and disposal activities;  materials recovery; +11.4%), 11 (Manufacture of beverages; +8.9%), 29 (Manufacture of motor vehicles, trailers and semi-trailers; +6.7%, 41 (Construction of buildings; +6.6%), 43 (Specialised construction activities; +6.1% and 28 (Manufacture of machinery and equipment n.e.c.; +5.8%). Decreases in turnover only occurred in ÖNACE divisions “Manufacture of leather and related products” (-13.9%), “Other manufacturing” (-12.7%) and “Mining support service activities” (-11.0%).
