Gribbin (1971) reports that 24000 firms were reported to be engaged in exporting in the early 1970s, but the majority was concentrated in the hands of a small fraction of firms. Table 2.1 shows this concentration (source: Trade and Industry 10 May 1973). Half of total exports in 1971 were accounted for by 79 enterprises; 23 firms exporting over £50 million per annum accounted for one-third of total exports while 230 firms accounted for two-thirds of total exports.
