The  Global  SME Market

What is a Small to Medium Enterprise?

Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are businesses that maintain revenues, assets or a number of employees between certain thresholds. Each country has its own definition of what constitutes a small and medium-sized enterprise (SME). Certain size criteria must be met and occasionally the industry in which the company operates in is taken into account as well. Small and medium-size enterprises play a hugely important role in the economy. They outnumber large firms considerably, employ vast numbers of people and are entrepreneurial in nature, helping to shape innovation and support local communities.

How big is the Global SME Market?

The SME market represents a huge opportunity. While exact figures are difficult to obtain because the definition varies between countries, it is estimated that there are over 360,000,000 SMEs worldwide.
