VALUE OF EXPORTS
Primary metal and metal product manufacturing was Australia's most heavily export-oriented manufacturing industry. In 2006-07, 39% of its sales of goods produced were exported. Businesses exporting more than 50% of sales contributed 34% of sales and service income and 22% of industry value added (IVA) of total Primary metal and metal product manufacturing, significantly higher than such businesses in any other manufacturing subdivision. The least export-oriented Australian manufacturing industry in 2006-07, in terms of the proportion of its value of sales and goods produced, was Non-metallic mineral product manufacturing (2%).
