The fortunes of the Shearing, Cropping and Agricultural Support Services industry are tied to the farming sector, in particular the beef, sheep and grain growing industries. Consequently, the industry is exposed to changing levels of production and prices of agricultural produce. As a whole, agricultural sector growth has been low and volatile over recent years due to shifts in domestic and export market demand and extreme weather conditions. Drought at the start of the five-year period negatively affected industry revenue and profit, as did the global financial crisis during 2008-09.
The Shearing, Cropping and Agricultural Support Services industry provides services to the agriculture sector, including aerial agricultural services, shearing, contract crop harvesting and animal testing. The industry excludes agistment services to the horse, and specialised beef cattle and sheep farming industries.
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.
