2018 Chicagoland's Middle Market: Past Performance; Future Outlook


Chicago’s middle market is a workhorse for jobs and economic vitality. It comprises just 1.5% of all Chicago-region companies, yet provides jobs to 26% of our private sector employees, and generates 22% of all business revenue in the region. Chicagoland’s Middle Market is a survey that examines the 2017 performance, and 2018 future outlook of Chicago’s middle market firms. The survey shows strong 2017 growth in revenue and jobs, and an outlook for additional growth this year – plus challenges that are creating headwinds. The survey is an initiative of the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce and the National Center for the Middle Market.
