This report, commissioned by the UK Department of Trade and Industry Small Business Service agency, identifies key market sectors where small and medium enterprises have a significant presence and draws conclusions about small and medium enterprises involvement in public sector markets. The report also separately analyzed enterprise "churn" to determine the relationship between the number of small and medium enterprises registrations in a sector and churn in that sector. Findings suggest that churn is positively correlated with the rate of small and medium enterprises registration in each industry analyzed.
