Final demand (excl. exports)1.45.6

Index reference period: 2011-12 - 100.0.

The main contributors to quarterly growth in Final demand were:

  • Output of building construction (+3.9%), driven by continuing supply constraints for timber and metals, high freight costs and labour shortages.
  • Petroleum refining and petroleum fuel manufacturing (+31.5%) due to a decrease in global crude oil supplies and increased demand in response to easing COVID19 restrictions.
  • Heavy and civil engineering construction (+2.8%), due to increases in diesel and material prices coupled with skilled trade shortages and high freight costs.

The annual rise of 5.6% in Final demand to June 2022 is the strongest increase since December 2008.

Using price indexes

Price indexes in contracts

Price indexes published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) provide summary measures of the movements in various categories of prices over time. They are published primarily for use in Government economic analysis. Price indexes are also often used in contracts by businesses and government to adjust payments and/or charges to take account of changes in categories of prices (Indexation Clauses).

Use of Price Indexes in Contracts sets out a range of issues that should be taken into account by parties considering including an Indexation Clause in a contract using an ABS published price index.
