ANNUAL MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY COLLECTION
Industry groups making a notable contribution to industry value added and not included in the subdivisions listed above included Cement, lime, plaster and concrete product manufacturing (ANZSIC Group 263 at 5.9%), Other chemical product manufacturing (ANZSIC Group 254 at 3.4%) and Publishing (ANZSIC Group 242 at 3.2%).
The Tasmanian manufacturing industry subdivision in 1999-2000 with the highest IVA per person employed was Non-metallic mineral product manufacturing at $172,600 per person employed, followed by Wood and paper product manufacturing at $109,600 per person employed, the same order as in 1998-99 and 1997-98.
EMPLOYMENT AND WAGES
The Tasmanian manufacturing industry employed 20,200 persons at the end of June 2000 and paid $745m in wages and salaries in 1999-2000. This represents an average of $36,900 paid in annual wages and salaries per person employed at the end of June 2000, an increase of 1.2% on the $36,500 recorded twelve months earlier. (Readers should note that the employment figure in this average measures the number of persons employed at the end of June and includes working proprietors. The wages and salaries figure excludes the drawings of working proprietors.)
Tasmanian manufacturing employment increased marginally from June 1995 (22,400 persons) to June 1996 (22,500 persons). Since June 1996, employment in the Tasmanian manufacturing industry decreased each year to June 1999 (20,100 persons) then increased slightly to June 2000 (20,200 persons). Over the five years from June 1995 to June 2000, employment fell by 10.0% or 2,300 persons.
Between June 1999 and June 2000, employment increased in four of the nine manufacturing industry subdivisions, remained steady in three and decreased in the other two. The industry subdivisions with the largest absolute increases were Wood and paper product manufacturing (up 400 persons or 11.0%) and Machinery and equipment manufacturing (up 200 persons or 6.9%). The largest decrease in both percentage and absolute terms was recorded by Food, beverage and tobacco manufacturing (down 500 persons or 8.8%).
Average wages and salaries paid per person employed at the end of June rose in five industry subdivisions and fell in the other four between 1998-99 and 1999-2000.
The industry subdivision to record the largest percentage and dollar increases, by far, in wages and salaries per person employed at the end of June was Food, beverage and tobacco manufacturing (up 14.2% or $4,300 - from $30,400 to $34,700), where 7 (out of 8) industry groups recorded an increase. This increase was the result of wages and salaries increasing by 4.2% or $8m and employment decreasing by 8.8% or 500 persons from June 1999 to June 2000.
Other industry subdivisions to record an increase in wages and salaries paid per person employed at the end of June were:
The industry subdivisions to record the largest percentage and dollar decreases between 1998-99 and 1999-2000 in wages and salaries per person employed at the end of June were Wood and paper product manufacturing (down 12.5% or $5,700 - from $45,300 to $39,600), where 2 (out of 3) industry groups recorded a decrease, and Non-metallic mineral product manufacturing (down 9.3% or $3,800 - from $41,200 to $37,300), where all four industry groups recorded a decrease.
Turnover rose, in current price terms, by $227m to $5,490m for 1999-2000. This represents a 4.3% increase on the $5,264m recorded for 1998-99.
Seven of the nine manufacturing industry subdivisions recorded an increase in turnover between 1998-99 and 1999-2000, while the other two recorded a decrease. Food, beverage and tobacco manufacturing remained the largest contributor to total manufacturing turnover in 1999-2000, again followed by Wood and paper product manufacturing and Metal product manufacturing. Other manufacturing and Petroleum, coal, chemical and associated product manufacturing recorded the largest increases in percentage terms (up 18.7% and 10.6% respectively). Wood and paper product manufacturing recorded the largest increase in dollar terms (up $107m or 9.2%). The two industry subdivisions to record a decrease in turnover were Machinery and equipment manufacturing (down 6.5% or $33m) and Non-metallic mineral product manufacturing (down 3.0% or $8m).
For 1999-2000, Tasmanian manufacturers directly exported $1,779m of the goods that they produced. This represents a 13.4% increase on the $1,569m recorded for 1998-99. Exports as a proportion of the total sales and transfers out of goods produced rose from 24.5% for 1994-95 to 34.0% for 1999-2000. The proportion of exports decreased by 0.1 percentage points between 1995-96 (28.6%) and 1996-97 (28.5%), increased in 1997-98 (32.0%) and fell slightly in 1998-99 (31.8%), before increasing to a series high of 34.0% for 1999-2000.
In 1999-2000, Tasmanian manufacturers again directly exported a higher percentage of goods than those in any other State. This has been the case every year since the series began in 1994-95.
Manufacturers' direct exports increased in seven out of the nine industry subdivisions and decreased in the other two between 1998-99 and 1999-2000. The industry subdivision to record the largest dollar increase in direct exports was Metal product manufacturing (up $128m or 21.1% - from $605m to $732m). The largest percentage and dollar decrease in direct exports was recorded by Machinery and equipment manufacturing (down $45m or 14.4% - from $313m to $268m) (this subdivision, however, recorded the largest dollar increase in direct exports in 1998-99).
Direct exports by establishments employing 100 or more persons increased by $261m (or 23.5%) between 1998-99 and 1999-2000. However, manufacturer's direct exports increased overall by only $211m (or 13.4%), because direct exports decreased for both establishments employing 0 to 49 persons (down $45m or 21.4%) and those employing 50 to 99 persons (down $5m or 2.2%).
