Estimates of employment are at end June. For more information on the scope and coverage of the collection for Australian Industry, 2014-15, please refer to paragraphs 6-21 of the Explanatory Notes. Time series data are provided from 2006-07 for consistency as survey data have been collected on an ANZSIC 2006 basis from 2006-07.


KEY INDUSTRY DATA OVER TIME

The following graph shows each industry (referred to by its ANZSIC Division) and its contribution to key data items in 2006-07 and 2014-15 for comparison over time. Although for most industries most indicators have increased over this period, the relative contribution of industries has changed. For example, Division C Manufacturing had the second largest employment after Retail trade in 2006-07 but by 2014-15 had dropped to sixth largest overall.

Division A Agriculture, forestry and fishing

The Agriculture, forestry and fishing industry showed strong growth across most key data items, with sales and service income and IVA increasing by 10.7% ($8.3b) and 15.2% ($4.1b) respectively driven by strong export demand for beef and other meat products.

Division B Mining

The Mining industry contracted across most key indicators in 2014-15. Industry value added decreased $9.4b to $118.3b in 2014-15, with the largest decrease in the Metal ore mining subdivision (12.9% or $9b) due to decreases in commodity prices.

Division C Manufacturing

Overall the Manufacturing industry decreased across most key data items, including wages and salaries, employment, sales and services income, total income and total expenses. However due to the diversity of the Manufacturing industry, the overall movements tended to obscure the difference in performance between the various Manufacturing subdivisions. The largest decrease in sales and service income was in Petroleum and coal product manufacturing, with a fall of $8.2b in 2014-15. The largest percentage decrease in IVA was in Transport equipment manufacturing (a decrease of 6.2% or $498m). In contrast, Food product manufacturing, the largest subdivision in Manufacturing, reported an increase in both sales and service income and IVA. Sales and service income increased 5.7% to $86.1b, and IVA increased 2.7% to $19.1b in 2014-15.
