The Top 10 industrial enterprises accounted for 48.6% of all production in Ireland in 2016.  

These 10 enterprises had an aggregate Net Selling Value (NSV) of €64.8 billion, while the remaining 3,116 industrial enterprises reported €68.5 billion. See Figure 1 and Headline table.

Over 80% of NSV generated by Top 50 enterprises

The Top 50 industrial enterprises in Ireland represented over four fifths of the overall NSV with a value of €107.7 billion out of a total of €133.3 billion. This indicates that the Manufacturing sector in Ireland is heavily reliant on a very small number of enterprises. See Figure 2 and Headline table.
