The Radio Broadcasting industry comprises all radio broadcasters, including commercial, public and community broadcasters, but excludes online-only operators. The industry's performance has been fairly subdued over the past five years due to strong and intensifying competition from a range of alternative media platforms, particularly online and cloud-based platforms. As a result, industry revenue is estimated to increase at a compound annual rate of only 1.5% over the five years through 2014-15, to reach $1.7 billion.
Companies in the Radio Broadcasting industry are primarily engaged in broadcasting audio signals to transmit aerial programming. Broadcasters include commercial, community and public operations. Firms that broadcast content exclusively on the internet are excluded from the industry.
