This paper measures the development of the national income share of the bioeconomy for 28 European Union Member States (MS) and 16 industries of BioMonitor scope from 2005 to 2015. The paper proposes a model which includes the up‐ and downstream linkages using Input‐Output tables. The results show that for the majority of the MS the value added of the up‐ and downstream sector is at the band of 40–50% of the total bioeconomy value added and has on average increased since the financial crisis.
