Sweden is among the first 30 countries in the world and the top 15 in Europe in terms of number of active companies, with around 2.110.000 businesses.
The Swedish economy has been growing rapidly over the years, allowing the country to hold the first position with the highest GDP in the Scandinavian region and the eighth place in Europe.
From the graphic above, we can see that the Agriculture, Forestry, Fishing and Hunting is the first sector as it represents 19% of the economy.
In the second place for number of active companies and with a very short distance from the first sector we find Professional, Scientific, and Technical Services with a percentage of 18,86%.
The third most developed sector is Real Estate and Rental and Leasing with a percentage of 10,05%.
The Agriculture, Forestry, Fishing and Hunting sector comprises establishments primarily engaged in growing crops, raising animals, harvesting timber, and harvesting fish and other animals from a farm, ranch, or their natural habitats. The establishments in this sector are often described as farms, ranches, dairies, greenhouses, nurseries, orchards, or hatcheries. A farm may consist of a single tract of land or a number of separate tracts which may be held under different tenures.
The Professional, Scientific, and Technical Services sector comprises establishments that specialize in performing professional, scientific, and technical activities for others. These activities require a high degree of expertise and training. The establishments in this sector specialize according to expertise and provide these services to clients in a variety of industries and, in some cases, to households.
The Real Estate and Rental and Leasing sector comprises establishments primarily engaged in renting, leasing, or otherwise allowing the use of tangible or intangible assets, and establishments providing related services. The major portion of this sector comprises establishments that rent, lease, or otherwise allow the use of their own assets by others. The assets may be tangible, as is the case of real estate and equipment, or intangible, as is the case with patents and trademarks.
In light of the above, we can state that the stability of Sweden’s economy and its ability to make important investments by companies, make it a very attractive market. Thus, investing in sectors such as those mentioned above should be taken into consideration, given the constant growth and market demand.
