Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Over the past five years, the Mining and Construction Machinery Manufacturing industry has grown moderately. Australia's mining investment boom initially drove demand for mining machinery and equipment, before reduced investment weakened demand and subsequently constrained revenue growth. Demand for industry products from downstream construction industries has been far more subdued than previously, with stagnant growth in building construction and modest public investment in infrastructure projects. Overall, revenue is expected to grow at a compound annual rate of 3.2% over the five years through 2014-15. Weaker expenditure on local mining activities is expected to contribute to a 6.4% drop in 2014-15, with revenue reaching $5.2 billion... purchase to read more

Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

A medium level of capital intensity characterises the industry. In 2014-15, for every dollar spent in wages, an estimated $0.16 is invested in capital.

In addition, increased automation of the industry's production lines has led to rising capital costs over the past five years. Continued technological improvements, combined with a focus on reducing variable operating costs, have resulted in wages declining as a share of revenue over this period. Due to high local wages, some companies have attempted to streamline operations overseas to be more competitive... purchase to read more
