Industry Growth Statistics 2019

Swyft Filings analyzed new companies formed between 2018 and 2019 to prepare its annual State of Swyft Industry report.

The company looked at the following three metrics to list industries in their report.

1. Year-over-year growth (year-on-year)

Percentage change in new businesses created in 2018 compared to new businesses formed in 2020.

For example, 700 new companies were created in Industry X in 2018 and 800 new companies were incorporated in the same industry in 2019. Then Industry X grew by 10%.

2. Growth rank

If Industry X saw the largest percentage increase in the number of new businesses incorporated in 2019 compared to 2018, then Company X would take the top spot.

3. Volume rank

Volume rank refers to the overall volume of new businesses created in 2019. Industry # 1 rank (X means this industry has the highest volume of new businesses created in 2019)

Based on the above three parameters, here is the report on the growth of the industry in 2019:

The wholesale sector was the best performing sector in terms of growth (year over year). However, it did not get the top spot for volume.

With the growth of e-commerce, it has become easier than ever to start an online retail store. And online stores fall into the retail business.

It is therefore not surprising that the retail sector was ranked first in terms of volume, which means that it received the highest volume of new companies formed in 2019.

It is clear from the data that the tech industry experienced good year-over-year growth (27.3%) in 2019 with growth rank No.15 and volume rank 10. Last year (in 2018 ), the tech industry’s performance was bleak. So what drove the growth this year?

56% of tech business owners, as Swyft Filings found in their survey, said increased demand for products and services drove growth in 2019.

So, this can be a good time to start your tech business this year if you have a perfect product / service to take out the weak spots in your target audience.
