Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The Mining and Construction Machinery Manufacturing industry has grown at a moderate pace over the past five years. The first phase of Australia's mining investment boom drove demand for mining machinery and equipment, until mining firms began to shift to resource extraction. This reduced investment weakened demand for mining machinery and subsequently constrained revenue growth. Demand for other industry products from downstream industries has been more subdued, highlighted by stagnant growth in building construction and modest public investment in infrastructure projects. Overall, revenue is estimated to grow at a compound annual rate of 3.2% over the five years through 2014-15.
