Abstract: 
Das Handwerk ist ein wichtiger Sektor der deutschen Volkswirtschaft. Die Erscheinungsformen handwerklicher Betriebe haben sich in den vergangenen Jahren aber entscheidend verändert. Während früher die mittleren Größenklassen dominierten, haben heute die Ränder an Bedeutung gewonnen. Dies sind zum einen Kleinst- und Ein-Personen-Unternehmen, deren Anteil stark gestiegen ist, und zum anderen handwerkliche Großbetriebe.
Abstract (Translated): 
The skilled crafts are still an essential element in the German economy. The characteristics of these companies, however, have changed dramatically in recent years. Previously, medium-scale enterprises of approximately 5 to 49 employees dominated. In recent years, however, a polarisation of the skilled crafts spectrum has occurred. Partially due to the amendment of the Trades and Crafts Code in 2004, the share of small and one-person businesses has risen sharply. Additionally, larger-scale enterprises play an increasingly important role, and this development is only partially reflected in the statistical data.
