The metal industry is the biggest sector of manufacturing. Its share of the number of establishments, employees and value added of output was one half in the whole country. In the regions, the share of the metal industry in manufacturing varied between 19 and 74 per cent.

The combined gross value of output for manufacturing (TOL C) establishments was EUR 104 billion in 2016. It was nearly the same as one year earlier.

The value added measures the total value added produced by the various factors of production in an establishment’s actual operating activities. The value added is calculated by deducting the costs of operating activities from the income from the activities. Costs exclude the costs related to the establishment's personnel.
