Australia is the world's largest wool producing country, accounting for about 25% of world production. Wool production has been declining in Australia and the world for the past ten years, and is expected to continue to do so in the medium term. Since 1990 Australian wool production has almost halved, to around 551,100 tonnes in 2002-03. Almost all of Australia's wool is exported, the major markets being China, Italy, Taiwan and India.
The total amounts of taxable wool received by brokers and purchased by dealers in recent years are shown in table 14.57. They exclude wool received by brokers on which tax had already been paid by other dealers (private buyers) or brokers.
