Are EU companies adopting digital technologies?

Digital transformation has a positive impact on annual turnover and productivity, and increases resource efficiency.

Survey results indicate that a large proportion of businesses that have adopted digital technologies report positive changes in their annual turnover. Most of these technology-adopting businesses (35.7% in the construction industry, and 52% in the food industry) highlight that their annual turnover grew by up to 20% and more during the last three years, while a smaller share 14,2% and 20,8% of these businesses respectively, indicate that their annual turnover during the last three years remained unchanged.

Regarding changes in resource efficiency measured by productivity gains, the perception is the same, with a large proportion of businesses adopting technologies, ranging from 35.7% in the construction industry to 47.8% in the food industry reporting having experienced 20% or greater efficiency and productivity in the last three years, while a smaller proportion (17.8% and 29.7% respectively) state that their productivity in the last three years has remained unchanged.
