SUPPLY AND DEMAND FOR SPORTS AND PHYSICAL RECREATION PRODUCTS

Supply and demand of selected sports and physical recreation products are based on the 2001-02 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. The latest available data are for 2001-02 which was released in 2007.

Sports apparel and sports footwear are examples of sports and physical recreation products 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 sports and physical recreation products (e.g. snooker tables, bowling alley equipment) and other leisure products (e.g. pinball machines, tables for casino games).

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

The total supply of the selected sports and physical recreation products in 2001-02 was $8,826m. Major contributors together accounting for more than half of the total supply were Sports and services to sports nec (which includes clubs, administration and coaching) with $2,256m, Horse and dog racing operation with $1,788m and Sports ground and similar facilities operation nec with $1,590m.

The overall contribution of imports to the supply of the selected sports and physical recreation products was only 10.0% ($886m). Only one product category recorded imports as the predominant source of supply. Imports of Sporting equipment and accessories was $483m which was 59.0% of the total supply of these products ($819m). Sporting equipment and accessories was also 54.5% of all imports of the selected sports and physical recreation products ($886m).
