About This Report


The Inland Water Transport industry will experience revenue growth at an estimated 0.2% per year over the five years through 2011-12 to reach $304.0 million. The heavy floods of 2011 halted ferry activity in Queensland, where approximately one-fifth of the industry operates and also had an adverse impact on the number of tourists visiting the area. The industry appears to have recovered from this event in 2011-12, with revenue growing 2.6% over the year due to tourism returning to pre-flood levels. Global economic uncertainty during the 2008-09 financial crisis also contributed to the subdued five-year revenue growth as leisure activities, such as river cruising, declined.

Organisations in this industry operate vessels that transport freight or passengers in harbours or inland waters (except tugboats or lighters).

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.
