The first stage of Australia's mining investment boom initially drove demand for mining machinery and equipment, until mining firms began to shift their focus to resource extraction. This reduced investment weakened demand for mining machinery and has subsequently contributed to declines in industry revenue. Demand for other industry products from downstream construction industries has remained subdued over the past five years, highlighted by stagnant building construction and declining investment in infrastructure projects.
