Contents >> Manufacturing and Energy >> Contribution of manufacturing to the Tasmanian economy

The contribution of the manufacturing industry to the Tasmanian economy can be assessed in terms of its contribution to Gross State Product (GSP). GSP is the total market value of goods and services produced in Tasmania within a given period after deducting the cost of goods and services used up in the process of production, but before deducting allowances for the consumption of fixed capital.

From 2000-01 to 2005-06, the manufacturing component of Tasmania's GSP increased steadily from $1,728m in 2000-01 to $2,237m in 2005-06. However, as a proportion of total GSP, the manufacturing component declined slightly in the most recent two years, indicating that other industry sectors have increased their share of the Tasmanian economy, relative to the manufacturing industry.
