Crisis care accommodation is a classically counter-cyclical industry. The name itself implies that an increasing number of personal crises across Australia will automatically cause a jump in demand for accommodation. Government funding for such operations is dependent on such demand, and the realisation that providing care for disadvantaged people can aid in limiting crime and unemployment provides further incentive.
Over the five years through 2011-12, industry revenue is expected to increase at an annualised 3.1% to reach $2.2 billion. The negative effect of the global economic downturn on the economy and households has been the main driver of growth over this period.
This industry provides care accommodation for disadvantaged people where nursing or medical care is not provided as a major service. It also includes firms and organisations that provide corrective services for juvenile offenders.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
