Productivity by enterprise size

Firm size matters for productivity. Larger firms are on average more productive than smaller ones, particularly in the manufacturing sector, partly reflecting gains from returns to scale, for instance through capital-intensive production. However, this is not universally true. In some countries, for example Switzerland, data indicates that medium-sized firms have higher productivity than larger firms, possibly reflecting specialisation in high-value products.
