Tourism supply

The tourism supply of an industry is derived by summing the value of tourism products sold by that industry. The value of tourism product sales is derived by multiplying the total supply (national production plus imports) by its corresponding tourism product ratio.

In the absence of supply and use tables for the years ended March 2010–12, an initial value of supply by product by industry for the same period was derived from a variety of sources (covered in detail in appendix 2 ‘Methodology’). In table 8, supply by product is shown only for tourism-characteristic industries.

Total supply and tourism supply by product are shown in table 8 for the years ended March 2009–12.

Points to note from table 8:

  • Goods and services can be consumed/purchased by tourists and non-tourists. The tourism product ratio indicates the proportion of a product's supply that is purchased by tourists. In 2012, for example, the tourism product ratio for accommodation services was 0.95. This means that almost all accommodation available was purchased by tourists. In contrast, tourists purchased only 22 percent of retail supplies of fuel and other automotive products.
  • Tourism supply increased 2.5 percent in the March 2012 year. From 2009 to 2012, tourism supply increased at a slower rate than total supply (4.1 percent compared with 7.5 percent over this three-year period).
  • Imports consumed by tourists represented 9.7 percent of total tourism supply in the March 2012 year, with the remainder provided by domestic industries.
