Australia’s manufacturing sector remains an important contributor to the economy, particularly in areas such as food and beverage production, pharmaceuticals, and advanced manufacturing, including aerospace and defence.

The manufacturing sector contributes around 6.8% of GDP and employs approximately 869,000 people. In financial year 2020-21, the total value of manufacturing sales was $392.7 billion, a 4.8% increase from the previous year. Food & Beverage manufacturing was the largest sub-sector of manufacturing in terms of both sales $81.5 billion and employment 246,800 people.

The changing landscape of manufacturing over the past 20 years has seen manufacturers embracing the challenge, creating unique and innovative processes to compete in the global economy.

Australia produces some world leading products including ACNA CNC Machines, Branach Ladders, ARB 4×4 Accessories, Austal Ships, GME Radios and EPIRBS, and Rode Microphones.
