Capital goods gave rise in turnover

Seasonally adjusted figures show an increase of 4.2 per cent in the turnover in Norwegian manufacturing for the three-month period from July to September 2008. The turnover of capital goods had the highest rise.

Total turnover rose by 3.7 per cent in the domestic marked and by 2.3 per cent in the export market. The growth in total turnover is in part a result of price developments in the period (see Producer price index .)

Still largest increase in turnover of capital goods

Seasonally adjusted figures show that the turnover of capital goods increased by 13.4 per cent from July to September 2008 compared to the previous three-month period. This is explained by large deliveries in machinery and equipment and transport equipment in this last period. Turnover in the domestic marked rose by 21.3 per cent while export turnover declined by 10.3 per cent.

The turnover of intermediate goods increased by 2.7 per cent in the same period. The domestic market went up by 0.5 per cent and the export marked rose by 5.0 per cent. The main contributors to this growth were chemical products and basic metals. The turnover declined in mineral products by 1.1 per cent and in wood and wood products by 5.5 per cent. This can be explained by lower building activity (see Building statistics ).

Consumer goods turnover grew by 2.1 per cent. Domestic turnover went up by 1.4 per cent, while export rose by 2.6 per cent. Food, beverages and tobacco products contributed the most to the growth in consumer goods turnover.

Turnover increase from August to September

Total turnover rose by 4.4 per cent from August to September this year. This is explained by some large deliveries in capital goods in September. The level of total turnover in the last three-month period is due to high turnover in July and September.

Growth compared to September 2007

Unadjusted figures show an increase in total turnover by 20.1 per cent in September 2008 compared to September 2007. Capital goods experienced the largest increase with 42.6 per cent growth in turnover. Intermediate goods turnover went up by 17.8 per cent, while consumer goods turnover rose by 11.4 per cent.
