Profitability of enterprises improved in manufacturing, trade and construction measured by operating margin in 2020
16 Dec 2021
Despite the coronavirus, the profitability of manufacturing, construction and trade enterprises improved in 2020 measured by operating margin compared to 2019. The gross margin coefficient in manufacturing and construction grew by 0.9 percentage points and in trade by 0.5 percentage points. By contrast, the profitability of service industries weakened by 0.5 percentage points. Without the support paid to the service sector, profitability would have weakened by slightly over one percentage point. Turnover grew in trade and construction in 2020, but fell in manufacturing and service industries. In manufacturing, operating expenses decreased more than the fall in turnover and other operating income, which was visible as an increase in the gross margin coefficient.

Description: The structural business and financial statement statistics describe enterprises operating in Finland. The statistics comprise industry-specific data on the number of enterprises, personnel, financial statements and itemisation of turnover and expenditure. The data on enterprises' financial statements describe the formation of profit, profitability and balance sheet structure in different industries. The examined variables are profit and loss account and balance sheet data, and parameters calculated from them. The statistics also include information on the growth of enterprises and how they have managed after the starting year.
