JUNE QUARTER

Summary Comments

Overview
  • All estimates are in seasonally adjusted chain volume terms unless otherwise stated.

Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing
  • Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing rose 0.4% driven by a rise in livestock. This was the fourth consecutive quarterly rise for livestock with improved seasonal conditions seeing continued expansion of herds and flocks. Falls in grains and other crops partially offset the positive result. Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing has grown 22.6% through the year, reflecting the strong grain crop.

Mining
  • Mining rose 0.6% driven by Oil and Gas Extraction (8.2%). Falls in Iron Ore Mining (-1.1%), Coal Mining (-5.3%) and Other Mining (-3.8%) partially offset this growth.

Manufacturing
  • The industry rose 1.8% supported by rises in seven of the eight manufacturing sub-categories. Strength in Food, Beverage and Tobacco Products (0.4%), Metal Products (3.0%), and Machinery and Equipment (2.5%) supported the rise. This was the largest rise in Manufacturing since June quarter 2011.

Electricity, Gas, Water and Waste Services
  • The fall of 1.4% this quarter was driven by the largest fall in Electricity Supply (-2.8%) since March quarter 2003. Water Supply and Waste Services (0.5%) and Gas Supply (0.2%) partially offset the negative result. This aligns with the 3.7% decrease in household final consumption expenditure for electricity, gas and other fuel.

Construction
  • The seasonally adjusted estimate rose 1.4% driven by rises across the industry.

Wholesale Trade
  • Wholesale Trade fell 1.9% in the June quarter driven by falls in Basic Material Wholesaling, Machinery and Equipment Wholesaling and Other Goods Wholesaling. Through the year Wholesale Trade has risen 3.7% buoyed by strength in Basic Material Wholesaling on the back of strong grain harvests.

Retail Trade
  • The Retail Trade industry grew 1.6% this quarter. This was the largest rise since June quarter 2012. This growth was driven by rises in Other Store Based Retailing and Food Retailing.

Accommodation and Food Services
  • The Accommodation and Food Services industry grew 2.1% this quarter driven by Food and Beverage services. This was the largest growth in this industry since June quarter 2014.

Transport, Postal and Warehousing
  • The Transport, Postal and Warehousing industry contracted 1.5% this quarter. Road Transport (-0.8%) and Rail Transport were the major contributors to this result.

Information, Media and Telecommunications
  • The Information, Media and Telecommunications industry grew 2.1% in the June quarter 2017. This was driven by a rise in Telecommunication Services.

Professional, Scientific and Technical Services
  • The seasonally adjusted estimate rose 2.5%. This is the sixth consecutive quarter of growth for this industry.
