The Norwegian Electronics Industry Report provides essential market intelligence for all sizes of company from small enterprises to major global groups and for financial/management consultancies, government agencies and academia requiring a reliable overview of the electronics industry in Norway.

Output for the Norwegian electronics industry declined by 4.1% in 2017 and compared to an increase of 1.6% in the prior year, and was primarily the result of a 7.6% decline in the production of control and instrumentation equipment the largest sector. Output rebounded in 2018 increasing by 4.4% but growth is forecast to ease to 2.4% in 2019. Products for Norway's important offshore oil and gas sector have created major opportunities for electronics in the field of control and instrumentation and as a result this sector has become increasingly well-established on the international market.

Output was impacted by weaker exports and subdued demand domestically in both 2016 and 2017 but on the back of a recovery in the oil and gas sector as well as an improving economy following the slowdown in 2019 should post annual growth of around 4.0% over the period to 2022. The sector overall accounted for 44.7% of total electronics output in 2018. As highlighted, Norwegian companies have a strong presence globally in the supply of communications and radar and navigation equipment (including defence). The segment accounted for 30% of electronics output in 2018 of which the majority, 79.4%, was related to the communications and radar segment.

Following a modest decline of 1.8% in 2017 output increased by 4.0% in 2018 and although growth is expected to ease to 2.3% in 2019 it is forecast to gain momentum over the following three years and reach 3.3% in 2022. Medical accounted for 7.1% of electronics production in 2018 and posted growth of 13.2% for the year as a whole. Output is forecast to ease to 4.0% in 2019 but is expected to be the fastest growing segment within the Norwegian electronics industry over the period to 2022 with growth of around 6.0% annually. Although output of computer equipment increased by 5.0% in 2017 production declined by 4.2% in 2018 and is forecast to fall by a further 5.0% in 2019 and then track down over the period to 2022. In 2018, the segment accounted for 6.7% of total production.
