Division A Agriculture, forestry and fishing

The Agriculture, forestry and fishing industry experienced strong growth in 2015-16 across most key data items, with sales and service income increasing by 10.5%. This was dominated by the Agriculture subdivision, with sales and service income up by 10.1% driven largely by strong demand for Australia's beef cattle, locally and internationally. The Forestry and logging subdivision also contributed to growth, with a 31.1% rise in sales and service income.

Division B Mining

The Mining industry experienced a strong decline in EBITDA (-17.5%) and sales and service income (-11.4%) in 2015-16 as a result of lower mining commodity prices, particularly for the Metal ore mining and Oil and gas extraction subdivisions. The Mining division Export Price Index fell by 17.3% between 2014-15 and 2015-16. Total income fell below sales and service income in 2014-15 and 2015-16 as a result of significant losses reported in other income following large negative revaluations and losses on sales of assets.

Division C Manufacturing

The Manufacturing industry continued its recent contraction, which was reflected in a decline of 0.6% in sales and service income. This was driven by the Petroleum and coal product manufacturing and the Beverage and tobacco product manufacturing subdivisions and tempered by growth in Primary metal and metal product manufacturing.

For ANZSIC class level information on the Manufacturing industry please refer to the 'Manufacturing industry' data cube on the Downloads page.

Division E Construction

The Construction industry recorded slight growth with EBITDA increasing by 3.3%, driven by growth in Building construction and Construction services moderated by the strong decline in Heavy and civil engineering construction.

Division F Wholesale trade

The Wholesale trade industry grew strongly in 2015-16 with EBITDA increasing by 8.0% ($1.5b). This growth was mainly driven by Grocery, liquor and tobacco wholesaling (31.3% or $1.1b) and Machinery and equipment wholesaling (8.7% or $372m). This growth was not evident in all subdivisions. Basic material wholesaling declined 1.5% in EBITDA and 13.5% in sales and service income ($21.8b).

Division G Retail trade

The Retail trade industry showed growth across key indicators in 2015-16, with sales and service income increasing by 5.4%.

Division H Accommodation and food services

The Accommodation and food services industry experienced moderate increases across the majority of key data items with sales and service income increasing 4.8% and EBITDA 7.2%. Food and beverage services dominated this division, accounting for over 80% of sales and service income.

Division I Transport, postal and warehousing

The Transport, postal and warehousing industry exhibited moderate growth in 2015-16 with EBITDA increasing by 4.7% and sales and service income growing 0.7%. This diverse industry is by its nature strongly impacted by the performance of other industries and their demand for transport services. The growth in EBITDA was driven by Other transport, Air and space transport and Road transport, while the growth in sales and service income was dominated by Postal and courier pick-up and delivery services.

Division J Information media and telecommunications

The Information media and telecommunications industry experienced declining EBITDA (-1.8%) in 2015-16, while sales and service income grew 3.5%. The Telecommunications services subdivision dominates this industry and was the main driver for both of these indicators.
