Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The Rock, Limestone and Clay Mining industry is estimated to generate revenue of $3.4 billion in 2013-14, up from $3.3 billion in 2008-09 at an annualised 0.8% for the five years. Industry revenue is expected to expand by 3.2% in 2013-14, building on the gains of the previous two years. This growth reflects the expected pick up in construction and building activity and growing demand for rock, stone and clay. Total construction activity has increased due to growth in infrastructure development, residential unit construction and road construction projects that use industry products. Despite this large gain, growth for the five years through 2013-14 is expected to be low due to a sharp decline in 2009-10 and a small fall in 2010-11.
