Norway’s DNB Manufacturing PMI eased to 59.2 in September of 2021 from 61.7 in the previous month and in line with the index’s average this year so far. The figure still reflected a strong pace of growth in Norwegian factory activity although growth was curbed by current supply bottlenecks and increased prices for production inputs. Sub-indexes like new orders (-3.9 points to 53.6), production (-3.5 points to 55.3) and employment (-5.1 points to 57.4) grew at a slower pace, but still remained robust. Also, stocks of purchased goods dropped marginally (-0.6 points to 51.8) and suppliers’ delivery time rose to a new all-time high (+3.5 to 86.5), reflecting ongoing supply chain issues and strong activity levels. source: NIMA/DNB Markets

Norway Manufacturing PMI
In Norway, the NIMA Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index measures the performance of the manufacturing sector and is derived from a survey of 300 companies. The Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index is based on five individual indexes with the following weights: New Orders (30 percent), Output (25 percent), Employment (20 percent), Suppliers’ Delivery Times (15 percent) and Stock of Items Purchased (10 percent), with the Delivery Times index inverted so that it moves in a comparable direction. A reading above 50 indicates an expansion of the manufacturing sector compared to the previous month; below 50 represents a contraction; while 50 indicates no change.
