To provide an indication of price movements of materials used by establishments classified to designated 'sectors' of Australian manufacturing industry.


The price indexes of materials used in manufacturing industries are on a 'net sector' basis; that is, each relates only to those materials which are used in the defined 'sector' of Australian manufacturing industry and which have been produced by establishments outside that 'sector'. These establishments are either Australian manufacturing establishments classified to other manufacturing 'sectors', or to other divisions of Australian industry (e.g. 'Agriculture, forestry and fishing' or 'Mining'), or are overseas producers (including overseas manufacturing establishments).

Method of collection

Prices of these materials are generally obtained from suppliers (producers and wholesalers). Prices of imported materials are generally obtained from importers and relate to shipments arriving in Australia that quarter.
