Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The industry's major product is salt. A large proportion of the salt is exported to chemical product manufacturing plants in Asia. Australia's salt production is expected to total 13.6 million tonnes in 2013-14, up from 11.3 million tonnes in 2008-09 due to increased output as final prices declined. Australia's salt output is estimated to account for 4.7% of global salt output in 2013-14, at approximately 290 million tonnes.
