Despite strong business confidence associated with increased construction expenditure in some industry sectors (i.e. public infrastructure) and the potential for government policy requiring the introduction of more fuel efficient vehicles, revenue growth is slow. Growth is constrained by the weaker Australian dollar and rising import prices which has increased the purchase price of commercial vehicles. (Source: Mullaly, J. IBISworld. Feb 2017)

Fuel retailing in Australia 2016 17 image

 

Despite the volatility of crude oil prices, profitability within the fuel retailing sector is continuing. Diesel sales are increasing but petrol is the highest seller. Industry ownership is fluid as fuel retail outlets are being sold by petrol companies to supermarket chains. Profitability may be impacted as consumers adopt vehicles with alternative drive trains (i.e. electric powered). This is offset by the growing numbers of Australian registered vehicles requiring fossil fuels. (Source: Magner, L. IBISWorld. Feb 2017)

Motor vehicle body paint and interior repair in Australia 2016 17 image

 

As the Motor Vehicle Body, Paint and Interior Repair industry tend to rely on vehicle accident repairs to generate revenue, new automobile safety systems and reduced vehicle accident rates have negatively impacted revenue creation. These negative impacts for industry are offset by the growing fleet of Australian registered vehicles and the higher discretionary income of consumers. Profitability is often reliant on business arrangements with insurance companies. (Source: Johnson, S. IBISworld. Dec 2016)
