Orgalim represents Europe’s technology industries, comprised of 770,000 companies that innovate at the crossroads of digital and physical technology to develop and manufacture the products, systems and services that unlock a prosperous and sustainable future.
Ranging from large globally active corporations to regionally anchored small and medium-sized enterprises, the companies we represent together comprise Europe’s largest manufacturing branch – directly employing 11.9 million people across Europe, generating an annual turnover of €2,819 billion, and producing one-third of the EU’s manufactured exports.
Our industries are driving innovation-led transformation within Europe and on the global stage. They are at the forefront of the digital revolution in industry and society more broadly, integrating digital tech and data to create entirely new products and services – fostering new markets and boosting the EU’s global competitiveness.
These enabling technologies underpin the green and digital transition, and are the reason why Europe currently has an undisputed leadership in the rapidly growing green tech sector. They enable sectors with high environmental impact to transition, for instance by improving the energy efficiency of buildings, facilitating the electrification of the energy sector, and supporting the development of a circular economy.
