December quarter

Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing +0.4%

This increase was driven by:
  • falls in input costs
  • Increased slaughter rates of cattle and sheep as ongoing drought conditions continued to impact the industry

Mining +1.6%

This increase was driven by a:
  • 3.9% rise in Coal Mining reflecting increased production of hard and soft coking coal
  • 4.2% rise in Other Mining with copper and gold production levels returning to normal after maintenance last quarter

Manufacturing +2.3%

The increased production was driven by a:
  • 6.2% rise in Food, Beverage and Tobacco Product Manufacturing as manufacturers experienced ongoing international demand for Australian meat products (Meat exports +2.9%)
  • 4.0% rise in Machinery and Equipment Manufacturing

Construction -2.3%

The decline was driven by a:
  • 3.4% fall in Building Construction, reflecting weaknesses in both residential and non-residential building construction
  • 1.7% decline in Heavy and Civil Engineering Construction due to a slowdown in non-dwelling construction
  • 2.0% fall in Construction Services

Transport, Postal and Warehousing +2.0%

Production was driven by a:
  • 3.1% rise in Transport, Postal and Storage Services with support, warehousing & storage services increasing
  • 1.7% increase in Road Transport due to increased livestock freight, reflecting increased livestock production and meat exports
  • 1.2% rise in Air and Space from increased domestic travel

Information Media and Telecommunications +0.4%

Telecommunication Services rose 1.0% , reflecting increased household expenditure on telecommunication services. This was partly offset by information and media services, which fell 0.3% due to a reduction in publishing, motion picture and sound recording activities.

Financial and Insurance Services +0.1%

Other Financial and Insurance Services rose 0.6% due to continued growth in superannuation services. This was partly offset by a 0.1% fall in Finance, driven by weak loan and deposit balances.

Professional, Scientific and Technical Services +0.1%

Other Professional, Scientific and Technical Services rose 0.5% due to engineering design for the mining industry and public transport infrastructure. This was partly offset by Computer System Design and Related Services, which fell 1.0%.

Health Care and Social Assistance +1.7%

The rise is driven by continued strength in public and private health. The industry remains strong through the year, with growth of 8.3%.
