OTHER LEISURE PRODUCTS

SUPPLY OF, AND DEMAND FOR, OTHER LEISURE PRODUCTS

Car trailer hire is an example of an out-of-scope product which is included in the supply and demand tables because it is part of a product group which is predominantly in scope of other leisure products. In addition, one product category included in the tables (Articles for funfair, etc.) is a mixture of other leisure products (e.g. pinball machines, tables for casino games) and sports and physical recreation products (e.g. snooker tables, bowling alley equipment). This category is also included in the equivalent tables for sports and physical recreation products in Products.


The product category Caravans, camper trailers and similar vehicles is in scope of the ACLC Product Classification but could not be included in the tables. This was because, due to confidentiality considerations, 1996-97 data for this category was not separately available.


As a result of the preceding, the totals presented in the tables below should not be viewed as the total supply of, and demand for, other leisure products. They are merely the total values of the products for which data was available and they unavoidably include a limited range of out-of-scope products. In addition, the Articles for funfair, etc. category is included in the totals for both other leisure products, and sports and physical recreation products.


The total supply of the selected other leisure products in 1996-97 was $10,119.8m. Major contributors to this were Licensed and non-licensed club services (which include net takings from poker machines) with $3,378.0m, Recreation services n.e.c. (which include the services of theme parks and amusement arcades) with $2,123.2m and Casinos operation with $1,302.5m.


The overall contribution of imports to the supply of other leisure products was $921.8m or 9.1%. However, there were two product categories for which imports were the predominant source of supply. Imports of Toys were $462.1m which was 94.7% of the total supply of these products ($487.8m), and 50.1% of all imports of the selected other leisure products. The $84.2m in imports of Articles for funfair, etc. was 51.2% of their total supply of $164.3m.

Final consumption expenditure by households accounted for $8,417.9m (83.2%) of the total supply of the selected other leisure products. Intermediate usage in the production of further products was $672.5m (6.6%) and products valued at $399.7m (3.9%) were exported.


For most individual other leisure product categories, final consumption expenditure by households made the largest contribution to overall demand. One exception was Video games, poker machines, etc. for which intermediate usage of $424.7m accounted for 66.3% of the $641.0m supplied. The other exception was Caravan, car trailer, etc. hire for which intermediate usage was also the main contributor to demand.


For Video games, poker machines, etc. there was no final consumption expenditure by households. This is as would be expected. These products are mainly purchased by businesses for intermediate usage in the provision of amusement services and gambling services.


Licensed and non-licensed club services contributed the most ($3,378.0m or 40.1%) to the total final consumption expenditure by households, and households accounted for 100% of the demand for this product category. Recreation services n.e.c. had the largest share of final consumption expenditure by government, contributing 89.1% ($253.8m) to the total ($284.8m). This category also had the largest share of exports with its contribution of $152.0m accounting for 38.0% of the total. Video games, poker machines, etc. provided the highest proportion of intermediate usage expenditure (63.2%).
