EXPORTS OF SPORT AND PHYSICAL RECREATION GOODS

Sport and physical recreation goods exported from Australia during 2012–13 were valued at $358.5m, a rise of 26% from the $285.6m recorded for 2011–12.

Since 2006–07, boats, yachts and other vessels for pleasure or sports and horses have been the two main categories of goods contributing to the total value of sport and physical recreation goods exported. In 2012–13 these two categories made up 67% of the total value of exported sport and physical recreation goods.

For boats, yachts and other vessels for pleasure or sports, the value (in current prices) has decreased from a high of $316.7m in 2007–08 to $98.5m in 2012–13. The value of the export of horses has increased by 64% from $87.6m in 2011–12 to $143.2m in 2012–13 and is similar to the value of exported horses in 2006–07 ($141.8m).

Other goods categories which have made substantial contributions to total exports in 2012–13 were spark-ignition marine outboard motors with a value of $19.1m and other articles and equipment for sports or physical recreation contributing $21.4m.

The value of exported swimwear for women and girls has increased since 2006–07 from $11.7m to $13.0m in 2012–13. The value of exported water skis, surfboards, sailboards and other water sports equipment has fallen from $21.8m in 2006–07 to $10.2m in 2012–13.
