Norwegian manufacturing output rose 2.2 percent from August to September, according to seasonally adjusted figures from Statistics Norway.

After a significant drop in August, we now see an increase from August to September, writes Central Bureau.

The increase is due to growth in several industries, but the biggest contributors to the overall industrial growth come from the industries: machine manufacturing, shipbuilding and the oil platforms, as well as computer and electrical equipment industries.

Looking at developments from the second to the third quarter last year, Norwegian manufacturing output is down 1.7 percent. Industries related to the oil sector contributed most to the decline – which was 6.3 percent.
