Preliminary results and estimates for 2018 and 2019 show that the Norwegian maritime equipment industry is set for growth. Revenues will increase in 2018 for the first time in four years, while employment remains stable compared to 2017-levels. Strong growth in new market segments, especially deliveries to exploration cruises and fishing ships, contributes to increasing revenues in 2018. Growth is expected to accelerate in 2019 with an estimated 13 per cent increase in revenue and a 3 per cent increase in employment.
