Mid-market insight

Mid-market companies –companies that are too big to be considered SMEs, but smaller than big, exchange listed businesses – play a key role in the UK and in the other top European economies.

In the UK, mid-market companies are just over 27,800 but they deliver over a third of economic contribution. Across the UK, Germany, France and Italy (the EU-4), the mid-market represents about 1.5% of all companies and yet it generates about one third of private sector revenue and employs about a third of each country’s workforce.

This section illustrates the findings of an ambitious research project, which started in 2012. The 2013 research is based on a survey of 2,690 C-suite executives of private and public companies across four countries.
