June quarter

Summary comments

Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing
  • Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing fell 2.1%, driven by falls in output of livestock and grains. Slaughter rates of cattle and calves decreased during the quarter, while the winter crops continued to be impacted by the ongoing drought conditions in the eastern states. The industry declined 8.1% through the year.


Mining
  • Mining rose 3.4%, driven by Oil and Gas Extraction (7.2%) and Coal Mining (3.9%). New and existing facilities drove the growth in oil and gas output, while a strength in global demand contributed to the increase in coal production. Iron Ore Mining rose 1.2%, as production volumes returned to normal levels following adverse weather conditions last quarter. The industry grew 6.2% through the year.


Manufacturing
  • Manufacturing fell 1.4%, driven by falls in Other Manufacturing (-6.4%) and Metal Product Manufacturing (-2.3%). This reflects general weakness in the Construction industry. Partly offsetting the fall were Food, Beverage and Tobacco Product Manufacturing (0.7%) and Petroleum, Coal, Chemical and Rubber Product Manufacturing (0.3%).


Electricity, Gas, Water and Waste Services
  • Electricity, Gas, Water and Waste Services fell 0.3%, driven by Electricity Supply (-1.8%). Partly offsetting the fall were Water and Waste Services (1.5%) and Gas Supply (3.1%).


Construction
  • Construction fell 1.4%, driven by Building Construction (-5.4%) with reduced activity in both residential and non-residential building construction. Heavy and Civil Engineering Construction (-1.0%) also contributed to the fall. The industry declined 6.9% through the year.


Wholesale Trade
  • Wholesale Trade fell 1.4%, recording the weakest result since September quarter, 2013. The result was driven by Machinery & Equipment and Motor Vehicle & Motor Vehicle Parts Wholesaling, reflecting ongoing weak domestic demand.


Transport, Postal and Warehousing
  • Transport, Postal and Warehousing fell 0.3% driven by reduced workloads for courier and delivery services. The fall was partly offset by a rise in Air and Space Transport (2.6%), driven by increases in domestic travel.


Information Media and Telecommunications
  • Information Media and Telecommunications rose 1.2%, driven by Other Information and Media (3.7%) due to a greater uptake of cloud services. The fall in Telecommunications Services (-0.9%) partly offset the rise.


Financial and Insurance Services
  • Financial and Insurance Services rose 0.2%, driven by Other Financial and Insurance Services (0.6%) due to a rise in superannuation services related to employment growth. Finance rose 0.1% driven by modest growth in loan and deposit balances.


Professional, Scientific and Technical Services
  • Professional, Scientific and Technical Services rose 1.5%, driven by continued demand for consultancy services, as well as an increase in technical and engineering services.


Administrative and Support Services
  • Administrative and Support Services rose 0.8%, reflecting continued demand for employment services. The industry grew 5.6% through the year.


Health Care and Social Assistance
  • Health Care and Social Assistance rose 1.5% driven by continued strength in both public and private health. The industry grew 7.9% through the year.
