Figures

On the survey date 31 December 2019, the 66 073 enterprises (+0.6% against the previous year) comprising industry and construction (Sections B to F of ÖNACE 2008) counted 1 015 936 persons employed (+1.9%). Of these, exactly 963 798 people (+2.0%) were employees (white collar workers, blue collar workers, apprentices and outworkers) for whom gross earnings (including gross special payments and gross redundancy payments) of €44.1 bn (+5.4%) were disbursed. In the 2019 year under review, the enterprises in the industry and construction sector achieved turnover of €302.5 bn (+0.9%). Of this amount, more than half (52.4% or €158.5 bn) was domestic turnover.

At the end of 2019, exactly 29 809 enterprises (+0.6% against the previous year) were counted in industry (Sections B to E of ÖNACE 2008), and they recorded a turnover of €248.3 bn (+0.9%).

The 36 264 enterprises (+1.1% against the previous year) in the construction sector (Section F of ÖNACE 2008) counted a total of 264 588 employees (+4.3%), who generated a total turnover of €54.2 bn (7.3%).

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 €41.7 bn, followed by the divisions 43 (Specialised construction activities) with €27.7 bn, 28 (Manufacture of machinery and equipment n.e.c.) with €26.0 bn, 29 (Manufacture of motor vehicles, trailers and semi-trailers) with €19.1 bn, 10 (Manufacture of food products) each with €18.6 bn, 24 (Manufacture of basic metals) with €17.5 bn, 41 (Construction of buildings) with €17.4 bn, 25 (Manufacture of fabricated metals products, except machinery and equipment) with €16.7 bn and 27 (Manufacture of electrical equipment) with €13.2 bn. These nine economic branches accounted almost two-thirds (197.9 bn or 65.4%) 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 170 245. It was followed by divisions 28 (Manufacture of machinery and equipment n.e.c., 88 689), 25 (Manufacture of fabricated metal products, except machinery and equipment, 77 273) and 10 (Manufacture of food products, 75 760).

The sectors with the greatest increase in turnover (+13.4%) were ÖNACE divisions 30 (Manufacture of other transport equipment), followed by the divisions 21 (Manufacture of basic pharmaceutical products and pharmaceutical preparations; +12.3%) and 38 (Waste collection, treatment and disposal activities; materials recovery; +11.8. Decreases in turnover only occurred in ÖNACE divisions “Other manufacturing” (-12.7%), “Manufacture of leather and related products” (-9.1%) and “Electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply” (-8.4%).
