Supplying the link: Demand from government and retail markets has aided industry growth

Over the past three decades, the Australian economy has opened up to international trade and shifted away from manufacturing. Procurement and supply chain consultants have been central to this process, providing expert advice to companies on adapting new technology, sourcing goods from new countries and improving internal procedures. The industry's service offerings are well understood by clients, and the number of untapped markets is drying up. Operators are becoming increasingly dependent on demand trends in major markets. Over the past five years, growing demand from government and retail markets has supported industry revenue growth. As a result, industry revenue is expected to rise at an annualised 4.4% over the five years through 2016-17, to reach $1.6 billion, with more.
