While the Electric Cable and Wire Manufacturing industry has fared better than many other manufacturing industries in Australia over the past five years, the industry has still been plagued by volatility and uncertainty. High import competition, uncertainty in downstream markets and ongoing changes to the National Broadband Network (NBN) have all influenced industry volatility. Overall, industry revenue is expected to decline at a compound annual 0.6% over the five years through 2014-15. This includes an estimated 3.4% decline to $1.76 billion in 2014-15, due to weak conditions in the building construction and mining sectors, and uncertainty related to the NBN.
The Electric Cable and Wire Manufacturing industry consists of enterprises that primarily manufacture electric or telephone cable, wire or strip, including stranded, braided or insulated non-ferrous wire, cable or strip.
