SUPPLY AND DEMAND FOR SPORT AND PHYSICAL RECREATION PRODUCTS

Supply of, and demand for, selected sport and physical recreation products are based on the 2008-09 Input-Output Product Classification. Input-Output tables are part of the Australian National Accounts, complementing the quarterly and annual series of national income, expenditure and product aggregates. Input-Output tables are produced on an irregular basis due to availability of comparable data covering all industry sectors.

Safety eyewear and goggles used for sport is an example of a sport and physical recreation product 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 in scope sport and physical recreation products (e.g. snooker tables, bowling alley equipment) and other out of scope leisure products (e.g. pinball machines, tables for casino games).

The totals presented in the tables below should therefore not be viewed as the total supply and demand for sport and physical recreation products. They are merely the total values of the products for which data was available, and may unavoidably include a limited range of out-of-scope products.

Major contributors to the supply of sport and physical recreation products were sports grounds and similar recreational facilities operation (excluding Gymnasia or fitness centre) with $3 billion, sport and physical recreation administrative services with $2,457m, gymnasia or fitness centre operation with $1,948m and sport and physical recreation club operation with a value of $1,200m.

Two product categories recorded imports as their main source of supply in 2008-09. Imports accounted for all of the total supply for sports footwear and 93% of the supply for other articles for funfair or table games (including billiards, snooker or pool, pintables articles and accessories).

(c) The sum of the components may not equal the reported total in all cases. This has been caused by small values (less than $500,000) being assigned to different industries or products as part of the modelling processes used in the compilation of Input-Output tables.
