Growth - Employment - Wealth

During the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, Styria was amongst the first areas to industrialize.

Back then industry was already focused on sectors in which Styria still generates world-recognized top performance today. Amongst these areas are metal production and manufacturing, machine engineering, and paper and paperboard manufacturing.

In the meantime Styria has been able to achieve market leadership in other state-of-the-art sectors, such as vehicle manufacturing, microelectronics and electro-technology. Styria has the highest R&D quota in Austria, which not only has allowed these sectors to advance but has also laid the cornerstone for seminal industries, such as biocatalysis in medical engineering or in other nanostructure materials.

 

Styria is a land of industry, shown by the dominance of the producing sector in added value and employment. The industry generates 37% of the regional GDP and employs half of the Styrian workforce directly or indirectly. That is why industry is the most important motor of innovation, the strongest economic power and the biggest employer in Styria.
