agree  Adrian MM.: turnover for BrE/ IrE consumption and volume in AmE.

agree  neilmac: I'd use "turnover" without any qualifier, as trade/commerce/sales are largely synonymous anyway IMHO and not necessary in the context.

sales


Explanation:
Comercial is often a false friend, meaning not commercial or trade but sales. For example, director comercial is sales director.

I would say something like

It is the top-selling midrange motorcycle manufacturer
or
In sales terms, it is the leading manufacturer of midrange motorcycles
or
It has the highest sales of any midrange motorcycle manufacturer.

neutral  David Hollywood: don't see much difference between sales and trade turnover
8 mins
  -> I simply don't think we'd say a company has a "trade turnover". Turnover, yes.

agree  patinba: Normal for a company. David's examples relate to the export trade of countries.

  -> Exactly! Thanks.

sales revenue


Explanation:
ales revenue is the amount realized by a business from the sale of goods or services. The two words can be used interchangeably, since they mean the same thing. This figure is used to define the size of a business. The concept can be broken down into two variations, which are:

Gross sales revenue. Includes all receipts and billings from the sale of goods or services; does not include any subtractions for sales returns and allowances.

Net sales revenue. Subtracts sales returns and allowances from the gross sales revenue figure. This variation better represents the amount of cash that a business receives from its customers.

Sales revenue is typically reported for a standard period of time, such as a month, quarter, or year, though other non-standard intervals can be used.

The key figure against which sales revenue is compared is net profits, so that the analyst can see the percentage of sales revenue that is being converted into profits. This net profit percentage is usually tracked on a trend line, to see if there are any material changes in performance. Investors also like to track sales revenue on a trend line, and especially the percentage rate of growth, to see if there is any evidence of changes in the growth rate. A declining growth rate may trigger a sell-off among shareholders.
