Operators have struggled to maintain profitability, with domestic demand faltering and competition from imports forcing prices down. Industry revenue is expected to decline by an annualised 0.6% over the five years through 2014-15. This performance includes estimated growth of 1.0% in 2014-15, to total $1.83 billion.
