Decrease in turnover

The fall in turnover in the export market is related to the negative price development for some industrial groupings with large export shares, such as the chemical industry, machinery, electrical equipment and metals.

Continued high turnover for Norwegian manufacturing

The turnover in the Norwegian manufacturing industries remains at a very high level in a historical perspective despite a moderate decline in seasonally adjusted figures in the last three-month period. Total turnover so far in 2007 amounts to NOK 585 billion according to unadjusted figures. This is an increase of 12.2 per cent compared to September last year. The domestic and export market contributed equally to this development.

The main industrial groupings capital goods and consumer goods showed an increase in turnover of 2.3 and 1.4 per cent respectively in the last three-month period according to seasonally adjusted figures. The turnover of intermediate goods showed a decrease in the same period.

Intermediate goods

Turnover of intermediate goods fell by 0.9 per cent in the last three month-period. This is due to a 2.8 per cent fall in turnover in the export market, mainly due to the fall in international metal prices.


The figures for turnover for Norwegian manufacturing have been updated with new information from March to August 2007. As a result, previously published data have been revised down.
