Information and Consulting

Since 2004, the Austrian Institute for SME Research has been carrying out regular structural and business cycle analyses as well as studies on the business situation and development of the knowledge-based service companies in the information, communication and consulting sector. A central research topic is the macroeconomic significance of support services for other economic sectors (e.g. in the field of digitalisation).

Economic Report Information and Consulting 2022

After Corona-related declines in turnover in 2020, the information and consulting sector developed positively again in 2021. Only in the printing, advertising and book/media industries was it not yet possible to reach the starting level of 2019. For 2022, the companies expect further increases in turnover with positive effects on the number of employees and investments. An increase in turnover for 2022 is forecast for all sectors. Unfortunately, these results must be considered subject to further developments surrounding the war in Ukraine and the sanctions against Russia. As part of the 2021 business survey, companies were also asked additional questions on climate targets, the digital transformation and general challenges.
