Abstract [en]

European manufacturing seems to servicify - use and sell more services - but knowledge is poor. We illuminate the phenomenon using detailed and comprehensive micro level data at both the firm and enterprise group level for Sweden (1997-2006). We find that manufacturing is servicifying substantially. On the input side, services and qualified services are increasingly characterising in-house activity in manufacturing. On the output side, manufacturing's share of services sales in total sales is up as well as services exports. Moreover, we show that services sales are much greater (almost 60 percent higher) when all activities in manufacturing's enterprise groups are considered. This has not been shown for a European country before. It means that when we consider enterprise groups, the large discrepancy in manufacturing's services diversification between Canada and the EUcountries vanishes, at the least for Sweden. The results imply that treating services and manufacturing separately - e.g. in EU’s trade negotiations - may be out of date. Finally, the findings illustrate the value of enterprise group level data when studying structural economic changes.
