The Top 10 industrial enterprises accounted for 44.9% of all production in Ireland in 2017.  

These 10 enterprises had an aggregate Net Selling Value (NSV) of €50.9 billion, while the remaining 3,406 industrial enterprises reported €62.5 billion. This data is based on the annual "PRODCOM" survey of industrial enterprises employing 3 or more people. See Figure 1 and Headline table.

Over 71% of NSV generated by Top 50 enterprises

The Top 50 industrial enterprises in Ireland represented over 71% of the overall NSV with a value of €81.2 billion. This highlights that the Manufacturing sector in Ireland is heavily reliant on a very small number of enterprises. See Figure 2 and Table 1.
