error_outline Covid-19 Impact Update - Electricity Distribution in Australia

IBISWorld's analysts constantly monitor the industry impacts of current events in real-time – here is an update of how this industry is likely to be impacted as a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic:

error_outline

The Electricity Distribution industry provides an essential service, and is expected to remain largely unaffected by the COVID-19 virus outbreak. For more information, see the Current Performance granule.

error_outline

Restrictions implemented in response to the COVID-19 virus outbreak are expected to alter demand for industry services. The closure of many businesses and growth in the number of Australian's working from home due to social distancing regulations, has led to a drop in demand from commercial clients. For more information, see the Major Markets granule.

error_outline

The drop in the domestic price of natural gas is expected to encourage consumer to use gas products over those requiring electricity. However, natural gas is an imperfect substitute for electricity, as it can only be used for heating and cooking purposes. For more information, see the Basis of Competition granule.

Note: The content in this report is currently being updated to reflect the trends outlined above.
