Slight decline in manufacturing

Turnover in Norwegian manufacturing was approximately NOK 44 billion in November 2003. One month before the end of the year, manufacturing had a total turnover of NOK 465 billion. This is a 2.2 per cent decline compared with the January-to-November-figure for 2002.

Among the main industrial groupings, capital goods experienced the most distinct change in turnover in the September-to-November-period, declining 7.6 per cent from the previous three-month period. The strongest contributor to the decline was lower turnover within transport equipment. Turnover within this industry was noticeably lower in the period compared with the preceding three-month-periods.

Intermediate goods up 0.6 per cent

There was little change in turnover for intermediate goods in the September-to-November-period compared with the previous three-month-period. However, the two large industries within intermediate goods, non-ferrous metals and basic chemicals, both experienced increases of 11.5 per cent in the period.

Consumer goods down 1.9 per cent

Consumer goods had a slight fall compared with the previous three-month period. This is a result of a decline within food and food products. The decrease was subdued by improved turnover within publishing, printing and reproduction.

Oil- and gas extraction up 6 per cent

Turnover within Norwegian oil- and gas extraction was approximately NOK 30 billion in November 2003, according to unadjusted figures. Turnover in the three-month period from September to November was 6 per cent higher than turnover in the previous three-month period. The raise is a result of increases in both production and price.
