Collapsing: Revenue has fallen due to weaker demand from mining and construction markets

The Conveyor and Crane Manufacturing industry manufactures a range of conveyors, elevators, moving walkways, cranes and lifting equipment. These products are sold to clients in the Manufacturing, Construction, Mining and Transport divisions. Over the past five years, industry operators have faced weaker demand in many mining, manufacturing and construction markets, and have steadily lost market share due to import penetration. However, demand for lifting, stacking and materials handling systems from transport, storage and commercial building markets has been solid over the period. Industry revenue is expected to decline at an annualised 2.8% over the five years through 2019-20, to total $2.0 billion. Industry revenue is anticipated to contract by more.
