Bavaria is one of the most attractive industrial locations in Europe, boasting a broad spectrum of research institutions, a highly developed technology transfer system and a first-class business-friendly infrastructure. What specifically distinguishes Bavaria and makes it internationally competitive are

  • the close link between business and science in clusters, and
  • the powerful alliance consisting of global players, SMEs that are international market leaders and a wide range of high-performing small and medium-sized companies.

Industry is the drive behind economic development in Bavaria and a central motor in the Bavarian value creation process. Nearly one-fourth of gross value creation is yielded by 7,000 companies working in manufacturing, with a workforce of more than 1.1 million.

The objective of Bavarian industrial policy is to further enhance Bavaria's attractiveness as a location for industrial production. Our industrial policy ensures an internationally competitive framework and targeted impulses for innovation and investment.
