The new edition of the ISM-MAAF craft barometer reveals the figures for business creations in the craft industry in 2021. Nearly 250.000 craft businesses were created in France, an increase of 13% compared to 2019. A record which attests to the dynamism of artisanal entrepreneurship which emerged unscathed, and even strengthened, from two years of health crisis, in most regions and activities. Creations are proving to be particularly dynamic in rural municipalities where they jumped by 23% compared to 2019.
