PRODUCTS


SUPPLY OF, AND DEMAND FOR, SPORTS AND PHYSICAL RECREATION PRODUCTS

Sports apparel and sports footwear are examples of sports and physical recreation products which could not be included in the supply and demand tables because they were part of a larger product category predominantly out-of-scope of the ACLC Product Classification. Conversely, tarpaulins and motor vehicle covers are examples of out-of-scope products which are included in the tables because they are part of a product category which is predominantly in scope. In addition, one product category included in the tables (Articles for funfair, etc.) is a mixture of sports and physical recreation products (e.g. snooker tables, bowling alley equipment) and other leisure products (e.g. pinball machines, tables for casino games). This category is also included in the equivalent tables for other leisure products in Other leisure products.


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, sports and physical recreation 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 sports and physical recreation products, and other leisure products.


The total supply of the selected sports and physical recreation products in 1996-97 was $6,634.9m. Major contributors to this were Sports and services to sports n.e.c. (which includes clubs, administration and coaching) with $1,889.1m, Horse and dog racing operation with $1,213.9m and Sports ground and similar facilities operation n.e.c. with $1,048.3m.


The overall contribution of imports to the supply of the selected sports and physical recreation products was only 13.6% ($903.6m). However, for two product categories, imports were the predominant source of supply. Imports of Sporting equipment and accessories were $536.8m which was 75.6% of the total supply of these products ($710.0m). This was also 59.4% of all imports of the selected sports and physical recreation products ($903.6m). The $84.2m in imports of Articles for funfair, etc. was 51.2% of the total supply of $164.3m.
