Summary Comments

Note
  • All estimates are in seasonally adjusted chain volume terms unless otherwise stated.

Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing
  • Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing grew 0.8% after experiencing four consecutive falls. Both livestock and grains rose during the quarter. Strong volumes of rural exports and high slaughter rates underpin the results for the industry. Through the year the industry recorded negative growth ( -8.8%).

Mining
  • Mining rose 1.5% driven by Coal Mining (4.7%), Exploration and Other Mining Support Services (4.2%) and Oil and Gas Extraction (1.5%). This quarter featured the biggest rise in Coal Mining since September quarter 2014 due to strong demand for thermal and hard coking coal.

Manufacturing
  • Manufacturing fell 1.5% in June quarter 2018 on the back of strong growth in the previous quarter. The result was driven by Other Manufacturing (-3.7%), Petroleum, Coal, Chemical and Rubber Products (-3.2%) and Machinery and Equipment (-1.7%). The falls were partially offset by an increase in Metal Products (1.1%).

Construction
  • The Construction industry grew 1.9% driven by Building Construction (1.5%), Heavy and Civil Engineering Construction (2.6%) and Construction Services (1.8%). The growth was due to elevated levels of approvals resulting in a strong pipeline of work around new buildings and roads, as well as investment in public infrastructure. The industry rose 5.5% through the year on the back of strong growth in Heavy and Civil Engineering Construction.

Retail Trade
  • Retail Trade experienced a 1.1% rise for the June Quarter 2018. The result was driven by Food Retailing and Other Store-Based Retailing. Major supermarkets and clothing stores had a combination of increased promotions and strong discounting during the quarter.

Information, Media and Telecommunications

Financial and Insurance Services
  • The Financial and Insurance Services industry rose 0.7% in June quarter 2018. The growth was driven by a rise in Other Financial and Insurance Services (1.5%) due to growth in superannuation and funds management. Through the year, the industry grew 2.7%.

Rental, Hiring & Real Estate Services
  • Rental, Hiring & Real Estate Services grew 1.7% driven by Property Operators and Real Estate Services (1.8%) and Rental, Hiring and Real Estate Services (0.9%). The result was driven by a rise in office rentals and sales and an increase in demand for machinery and equipment hiring services.

Professional, Scientific and Technical Services
  • Professional, Scientific and Technical Services industry grew 1.9% in the June quarter 2018. This is the eleventh consecutive rise driven by broad based growth.

Administrative and Support Services
