OTHER LEISURE PRODUCTS
WHOLESALE INDUSTRY SURVEY 1998-99
The information presented here comes from the publication Wholesale Industry, Australia, 1998-99 (cat. no. 8638.0). The two product categories in table 14.2 are the only ones used in that publication which closely correspond to products included in the ACLC Product Classification. The category Bicycles and ride-on toys combines other leisure products (ride-on toys) with a sports and physical recreation product (bicycles). Hence, this category is also included in the equivalent table for sports and physical recreation products in Products (table 11.2). As a result of the preceding, it is not possible to sum the sales figures for each of the two product categories in table 14.2 to obtain an estimate of the total sales for all other leisure products.
At $519.1m, Other toys and games had the greater wholesale sales for 1998-99. The percentage margins for the two product categories were almost identical; 30.5% for Other toys and games, and 30.6% for Bicycles and ride-on toys.
