Rütter Soceco AG, now part of EBP, conducted a study recently to ascertain the overall economic significance of sports in Switzerland. With estimated annual sales of around CHF 22.2 billion, the sports industry accounts for around 1.7 percent of Switzerland’s gross domestic product. Moreover, the sports industry generates a work volume equivalent to 97,900 full-time jobs. This corresponds to around 2.4 percent of Switzerland’s total work volume. Enhancing the available base of relevant and reliable data, these and other findings will benefit policymakers and industry stakeholders alike.
