TOY, SPORTING AND RECREATIONAL PRODUCT MANUFACTURING
The ACLC Industry Classification includes the Classes 341 Sports and physical recreation good manufacturing and 481 Other culture and leisure goods manufacturing. It would be ideal for data to be separately available for both classes, however the data published on the manufacturing industry for 2010-11 and 2011-12 are classified according to the 2006 ANZSIC rather than the ACLC. The only 2006 ANZSIC Class which corresponds closely in scope to ACLC classes 341 and 481 is 2592 Toy, sporting and recreational product manufacturing. The scope of this ANZSIC class is wholly contained within, but much narrower than the combined scope of the two ACLC classes.
At the end of June 2012, there were 2,187 persons employed in toy, sporting and recreational product manufacturing.
In 2011–12, the total sales and service income of toy, sporting and recreational product manufacturing was $384.0m. This figure decreased by $41.0m (10%) from 2010–11.
Industry value added is the measure of the contribution by businesses in each industry to gross domestic product. Industry value added for toy, sporting and recreational product manufacturing decreased by $5.0m (3%) between 2010–11 and 2011–12.
