The Leading Maritime Cities of the world 2022

The LMC report is compiled in cooperation between Menon Economics and the classification society DNV.
Approximately 15000 cities are benchmarked on 40 different indicators. As before, we benchmark each maritime city based on five key pillars

  • Shipping
  • Maritime Finance & Law
  • Maritime Technology
  • Ports & Logistics
  • Attractiveness & Competitiveness

Singapore’s strong performance across the five pillars sees it keeps its number one spot overall, followed by Rotterdam and London. Oslo retains its strong position in Maritime Technology and Finance & Law, and takes the 7th place on the total ranking.

Norwegian Maritime Equipment Suppliers 2021

Menon has since 2014 published a yearly in-depth study of the Norwegian maritime equipment suppliers on behalf of The Federation of Norwegian Industries (“Norsk Industri”)The report is based on maritime equipment manufacturers and analyzes their level of activity – both historical development, status quo and expectations for the future.
Production of ship equipment and other maritime equipment is one of Norway’s few internationally competitive industries that do not rely on natural resources. In 2020, companies producing or selling maritime equipment had a total revenue of close to NOK 150 billion and employed around 34 thousand people.

GCE Blue Maritime 2021

GCE Blue Maritime is one of three Global Centers of Expertise in Norway – the highest level in the hierarchy of Norwegian Innovation Clusters. Menon Economis has for six consecutive years studied the competitiveness of the Blue Maritime cluster, measured by key economic performance, both in absolute terms and compared to the rest of the maritime industry in Norway and to international competitors. In this year’s report, we place more emphasis on the market prospects of the cluster, as a function of expected growth in different market segments and the Blue Maritime cluster position in these markets.

Policy instruments to realise floating offshore wind in Norway

In this report, we have carried out a socio-economic assessment of which policy instruments are most suited to induce private investment in large-scale floating offshore wind on the Norwegian continental shelf. Furthermore, we have assessed the market development over the last 12 months in order to update our 2019-analysis on the prospects of the industry.

Female entrepreneurship in the Nordics 2020 – a comparative study

Menon Economics has on behalf of Nordic Innovation written a report on female entrepreneurship in the Nordics. In the report, we investigate the current entrepreneurial landscape in the Nordics, using data from the statistical agencies in the Nordics and Bureau Van Djik. Even though the Nordic countries are viewed as forerunners on gender equality, far fewer women than men are starting businesses. Also, even though the Nordics are considered to be culturally similar, there are clear differences in the share of female entrepreneurs across the Nordics.

In the study, we provide an overview of factors that may help explain this, looking both at personal characteristics and preferences of the entrepreneurs, and structural factors outside the independent entrepreneurs’ control. The study is concluded with measures to stimulate female entrepreneurship, related to role-models and networks, access to external financing, and competitive disadvantages in industries where women start businesses.

GCE Blue Maritime Cluster – Global Performance Benchmark 2019

In this project Menon Economics has mapped the economic performance of the world leading business cluster GCE Blue Maritime. The report shows the historic development in the cluster and provides an outlook on economic performance in the coming years. The statistics and prognosis are based on a comprehensive collection of data from accounts, survey data collected in the project and internationally renowned maritime information databases.

The 2019 report shows that activity incraesed in 2018 after declining revenues from 2014 through 2017. Revenue is expected to grow further in 2019 and 2020 with an estimated increase in income of 20 per cent from 2018 to 2020. The increased activity comes as a result of continued growth in relatively new market segments.

The Møre yards have taken a strong position in the market for exploration cruises and are set to deliver 15 of the 40 cruise vessels under 50 000 GT currently on order with a delivery date before 2022. As a result, the equipment manufacturers are increasingly shifting their focus towards deliveries for cruise vessels as well.

Offshore shipping companies continue to struggle. Market conditions are still harsh, even though there looks to be some light on the horizon higher fleet utilisation. The Norwegian and Møre offshore shipping companies still, like last year, seem to be more indebted than their foreign counterparts, which makes it harder to compete against foreign competitor

Flytende havvind

Menon Economics har vurdert verdiskapingspotensialet som ligger i en norskbasert industri for flytende havvind, med hensyn til markedsutvikling og global konkurransekraft. Studien er gjennomført på oppdrag fra Norwegian Offshore Wind Cluster i samarbeid med Eksportkreditt Norge, Norges Rederiforbund, Norsk Industri, GCE NODE, Haugaland Vekst og Greater Stavanger.

Norske aktører står bak sentrale teknologikonsepter i den pågående utviklingen innen flytende havvind, og kompetansen fra olje- og gassektoren bidrar til et betydelig potensial for å ta andeler i et globalt marked.

Menon Economics have examined the potential for value creation in the Norwegian floating offshore wind power industry, with a focus on market development and global competitiveness. The study was conducted on behalf of Norwegian Offshore Wind Cluster, in collaboration with Export Credit Norway, Norwegian Shipowners’ Association, GCE NODE, Haugaland Vekst and Greater Stavanger.

Policy Brief: Nordic Ecosystem Services: Examples, applications and knowledge gaps

This report aims to sum up and show some examples of the results of the ecosystem services projects carried out for Nordic Council of Ministers (NCM). It illustrates which ecosystem services we receive from Nordic nature and the importance of these. It also shows examples of how the ecosystem services approach has been and can be used in management of nature in the Nordic countries, and to point out some knowledge gaps.

På oppdrag for Nordisk ministerråd (NMR) har Menon senter for miljø- og ressursøkonomi, MERE, utarbeidet en policy brief om nordiske økosystemtjenester – eksempler, anvendelser og kunnskapshull. Briefen gir oversikt over gjennomførte studier i regi av NMR, hvilke økosystemer og økosystemtjenester som er dekket og hvorvidt man har oppgitt økonomiske verdier for tjenestene. Økosystemtjenester fra ferskvann, marine områder og kystvann er spesielt godt dekket. Det mangler fortsatt økonomiske verdier for mange, for ikke å si de fleste økosystemtjenestene. Slike økonomiske verdsettingsestimater kan være nyttige i mange policyanvendelse, og rapporten anbefaler at fremtidige studier fremskaffer slike verdier for flere økosystemtjenester.

Rapporten kan også lastes ned på Nordisk ministerråds hjemmeside.
