Project Title

Scientific leader

Giampaolo Vitali

Lead partner of the project


Funding organization

Associazione GISI, Cinisello Balsamo (MI)


We built the dataset of  the universe of the Italian firms working in the Instrumentation, Industrial Automation, Process and Laboratory (SAIPL) sector.

We analysed the financial statements of only small firms (turnover 1-50 million euros), as large companies are usually diversified into non-SAIPL sectors too.

We divide firms on the basis of their main activity: manufacturing firms vs. service/commercial firms.

We process the balance sheets of the two samples in order to obtain a weighted mean that reflects the average structure of the SAIPL sector and of the two segments.

The analysis of the financial statements reveals the main characteristics of the capital and financial structure and their performance during the period under review.
