Music to their ears: Global demand for Australian headphones has supported industry growth

The Audio Visual Electronic Equipment Manufacturing industry has performed strongly over the past five years. Industry growth has been fuelled by growth in export markets due to the depreciation of the Australian dollar over the period. Furthermore, demand has also increased for defence-related products, as defence spending by the Federal Government has increased, as well as spending by private security firms. Despite high import penetration, industry revenue is expected to increase at an annualised 8.0% over the five years through 2018-19, to $2.4 billion. This includes a forecast increase of 0.5% in the current year due to increased spending on capital goods driving demand for a range of industry more.
