This paper aims to understand how concentrated the UK economy is, via a thorough analysis of trends in concentration across the economy.

It first asks how concentrated our product markets are in terms of the revenue share of the most significant UK firms, before turning to an area that has recently gained more emphasis in discussions – the concentration of employment among the biggest employers.
