September quarter

Summary comments

Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing
  • Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing fell 2.1%, driven by falls in output of livestock and other crops. Slaughter rates of cattle and calves decreased during the quarter, while the winter crops continued to be impacted by the ongoing drought conditions. The industry declined 6.1% through the year.

Mining
  • Mining rose 0.7%, driven by Iron Ore Mining (2.0%) and Coal Mining (0.6%). The continued strength in external demand drove the growth in iron ore output, while coal production increased following maintenance in the previous quarter. Oil and Gas Extraction (0.2%) contributed to the rise driven by new sites increasing capacity. The industry grew 7.4% through the year.

Manufacturing
  • Manufacturing fell 0.6%, driven by a fall in Food, Beverage and Tobacco Product Manufacturing (–1.5%). Low meat production and reduced demand for beverages drove the fall this quarter. Partly offsetting the fall was a rise in Machinery and Equipment Manufacturing (1.6%), due to demand for industrial equipment.

Electricity, Gas, Water and Waste Services
  • Electricity, Gas, Water and Waste Services fell 0.3%, driven by Electricity Supply (-0.8%). Partly offsetting the fall was Gas Supply (2.0%) as power stations were operating at elevated levels to cover coal generator outages.

Construction
  • Construction rose 0.5%, driven by Construction Services (0.6%) and Building Construction (0.6%) reflecting increased work in the private non-residential sector. Heavy and Civil Engineering Construction fell (–0.2%), partly offsetting the rise, due to a slowdown in mining and electricity generation infrastructure projects.

Information Media and Telecommunications
  • Information Media and Telecommunications rose 0.8%, driven by Telecommunication Services (1.2%) with an increase in the uptake of internet and mobile services. Other Information and Media recorded a rise of 0.4%, driven by internet publishing.

Financial and Insurance Services
  • Financial and Insurance Services rose 0.1%, driven by Finance (0.1%) reflecting continuing weakness in growth of loan balances, particularly dwelling and personal loans, and modest growth in deposit balances. Other Financial and Insurance Services rose 0.1%, due to a rise in superannuation services.

Professional, Scientific and Technical Services
  • Professional, Scientific and Technical Services rose 1.3%, driven by Computer System Design and Related Services (4.7%). This rise is attributed to increased demand for software, cyber security and other web services. Other Professional, Scientific and Technical Services rose 0.1% due to continued strength in consultancy services.

Health Care and Social Assistance
  • Health Care and Social Assistance rose 2.6%, driven by continued strength in both public and private health. The industry grew 8.3% through the year.
