Cyprus has third highest share of radio broadcasting enterprises in EU

Cyprus had the third highest share of radio broadcasting enterprises per million of the population in the European Union, according to 2017 figures published by Eurostat on Thursday.

Per million of the population, the number stood at 43 in 2017. Overall, Cyprus had a total of 37 such enterprises, down from 46 in 2009.

The drop mirrors an EU-wide trend. Eurostat figures show there were 5017 enterprises operating as radio broadcasters across the EU in 2017. This is 300 fewer than in the previous year and 11% fewer than the 5641 enterprises in 2013.

In 2017, radio broadcasting enterprises generated €2,652 million of value added, 29% less than in 2013, while they recorded a turnover of €5,192 million, down from €6,979 million in 2013.

Highest number of radio broadcasting enterprises in Spain, Italy and Greece

Among EU Member States, the number of radio broadcasting enterprises varied greatly. There were many more of these enterprises in Spain (963), Italy (720), Greece (622, provisional data), Hungary (310) and Portugal (293), than in Luxembourg (6), Estonia (10), Slovakia (16), Lithuania (23) and Cyprus (37).

Taking into account Member States population size, the number of radio broadcasting enterprises per million inhabitants also differs greatly between EU Member States.

The highest ratios were recorded in Slovenia (76 radio broadcasting enterprises per million inhabitants), followed by Greece (58), Cyprus (43), Croatia (38), Hungary (32) and Portugal (28), while the lowest ones were observed in Germany, Poland, and Slovakia with three radio broadcasting enterprises per million inhabitants.

In 2017, radio broadcasting enterprises employed 48 345 persons in the EU, 14% less than in 2013.

The number of persons employed in this sector also varied greatly across the EU Member States. Germany employed 8727 persons in the radio broadcasting sector whereas in Slovakia just 63 persons were employed in the same sector in 2017.

The number of persons employed as a percentage of total employment is low in all EU Member States, ranging from 0.10% in Greece and Sweden to almost zero in Czechia and Slovakia.
