More about Portugal
- ALLCOUNTRYLIST: Overview of major industries in Portugal, including mining, construction, transportation, tourism, and foreign trade.
In the service sector (2015) 67.8% of all employees work (1980: 36%); its contribution to the gross domestic product (GDP) reaches 75.8% (1980: 49.5%).
Tourism: Tourism has become a major growth factor; the foreign exchange income from this amounted to EUR 10.4 billion in 2014. Most of the 9.9 million foreign visitors came from Great Britain (16.2%). Tourism is concentrated on the Algarve coast, the Lisbon area with the seaside resorts of Cascais and Estoril, and Madeira.

Portugal has few significant natural resources. The deposits (e.g. of iron, copper, tin, lead, manganese and zinc ore) are mostly small and of low yield. Only in lithium and tungsten production does Portugal occupy a noteworthy position worldwide. In addition, the mining of marble and granite as well as pyrite is important.
Portugal is largely dependent on imports to meet its energy needs. 58.3% of electrical energy (production volume in 2014: 48.8 billion kWh) is generated by renewable energies. The share of hydropower is 33% (reservoirs on the Cávado, Minho, Zêzere and on the Douro); 24.1% are generated by wind power plants; Solar energy accounts for 1.2%; Added to this is the generation of electricity through the use of biomass, geothermal energy and tides.
In the secondary sector (including mining, energy and construction) (2015) 24.2% of the workforce generated 21.9% of GDP (1980: 37% and 40.2% respectively). The manufacturing industry is mainly located in northern and central Portugal. Small industrial businesses and handicraft businesses dominate in the textile and clothing industry, leather processing, shoe production and cork and ceramic production. Large companies predominate in the field of shipbuilding and mechanical engineering, in car assembly and in the chemical industry. The most important branch of industry (in terms of value) is vehicle construction; other important industries are the textile and clothing industry, which are particularly concentrated in the districts of Braga and Porto, followed by the food and beverage industry (mainly the production of canned fish, olive oil production, wine and spirits production). The cork industry is mainly located in southern Portugal. After the construction of oil refineries near Lisbon and Porto, the petrochemical industry also developed (the center is Sines). Pulp production, shipbuilding, mechanical engineering, building materials, electrical and leather industries are also important.
The transport infrastructure is largely oriented towards the coast and shows clear gaps to this day. The national road network covers around 14,310 km, 3,065 km of which are toll roads. The most important connection is the north-south motorway from the Spanish border via Porto to Lisbon. The main line of the railway runs from Porto to Lisbon. The route network covers 2,544 km; 1,630 km of this is electrified. In addition to the normal-gauge network (1 668 mm), narrow-gauge lines (1 000 mm) are also in operation in Portugal. The construction of the high-speed lines Lisbon – Porto and Lisbon – Madrid was stopped due to the tight budget situation.
Inland navigation is only possible on the lower reaches of the large rivers. The Duero should be emphasized here, and the Tagus ferries near Lisbon are also of economic importance. The total throughput in Portuguese ports was 76.5 million t in 2014. The largest part of this was accounted for by the Sines oil port (46%); this is followed by the ports of Leixões (Porto) and Lisbon. Other important ports are Setúbal, Funchal on Madeira and Ponta Delgada and Horta on the Azores.
The most important international airport is Lisbon (2016: 22.4 million passengers). Faro airport (7.6 million passengers) is of great importance for tourism in the Algarve. Other international airports are Porto, Funchal (Madeira) and Santa Maria (Azores). The national airline is TAP Portugal.
