Share of product innovators that introduced new-to-market products - %
Results extrapolated to population of enterprises with product innovations [goods and/or services]
The period under consideration corresponds to the 3-year period ending with the indicated year.
Share of product innovators who have introduced a product that was new to their market, i.e. they introduced it before their competitors (though it may already have been available on other markets). Results are extrapolated to the population of enterprises with product innovations. The period under consideration corresponds to the 3-year period ending with the indicated year.
Enterprises considered are enterprises with 10 or more employees, in manufacturing, mining and quarrying and other industry; wholesale trade; transportation and storage; information and communication; financial and insurance activities; select professional, scientific, and technical activities.
Note: The core set of services sectors to be covered in CIS was slightly expanded from CIS 2012 on, per Eurostat’s guidelines. The number of enterprises in the divisions added is not very numerous, however; adding them adds roughly 3% to the total targeted population of enterprises. Hence, results between the various years should still be roughly comparable, despite the slight expansion of NACE sectors covered.
