Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The Grain Storage industry has performed strongly over the past five years due to plentiful crop yields and two years of record rainfall. Massive harvests in 2010-11 and 2011-12 assisted industry performance, as demand for grain storage facilities increased significantly in these two years. Weather conditions have also fluctuated dramatically over the past five years. Initially, drought conditions changed to years of record rainfall, which resulted in both bumper harvests and damaged and destroyed grain crops in different areas. Weather conditions have since improved, resulting in more stable crop yields and steadier revenue growth.

Industry revenue is projected to rise at a compound annual rate of 5.9% over the five years through 2014-15... purchase to read more

Industry Report - Industry Locations Chapter

Barley is primarily grown in Western Australia and oats tend to be more tolerant of wetter conditions in Victoria and southern New South Wales... purchase to read more
