Industry players have benefited little from favourable economic conditions, despite discretionary incomes increasing and consumer sentiment largely positive.

Industry Report - Industry SWOT Analysis Chapter

The industry's contribution to the overall economy, as measured by the Industry Value Added, is expected to grow at an annualised 0.5% over the ten years through 2020-21.
