Key figures on European business: 2023 edition

May 25, 2023

Did you know that industrial producer prices increased by 27 % in 2022 compared with 2021? And that telecommunications, computer and information services represented almost a fifth of total exports of services from the EU to all countries of the world in 2021?

You can find this information and much more in Key figures on European business, the 2023 update of the publication, which provides an insightful overview of the business economy in Europe through visuals and brief explanations.


The publication opens with a comprehensive summary of the entire business economy, which is then followed by an analysis of its structure. The other four chapters focus on separate parts of the business economy (industry, construction, distributive trades and other non-financial services). A final chapter is dedicated to examining the tourism sector.

Short-term business statistics and tourism statistics are generally presented through to the end of 2022, revealing the impact of COVID-19 and containment measures on the business economy, early impacts from the Russian military aggression against Ukraine and the related sanctions, and recent higher levels of inflation. Structural business statistics are now available for the 2020 reference year and so reflect the initial impact of the COVID-19 crisis.
