Tourism industry profitability

Measuring tourism industry profitability allows for more in-depth alternative analysis of the tourism sector. This measure provides time-series data on variables at an industry level, allowing comparison across time, within an existing industry, and across industries.

Table 14 and figure 10 show gross operating surplus as a percentage of total tourism output for tourism industries and for all non-tourism-related industries. It is one measure of tourism profitability, but reflects economic rather than accounting concepts. Data is presented up until the latest balanced supply and use year.

Gross operating surplus is before the deduction of interest and economic depreciation.

Download tables 1–14 (Excel, 16 sheets, 335kb) 

Points to note from table 14:

  • The profitability of total tourism-characteristic industries for the year ended March 2012 increased 1.6 percentage points compared with the year ended March 2011.
  • Only the tourism-characteristic industries of ‘rental and hiring services’ and ‘road, rail, and water transport’ had lower profitability ratios than in 2011.
  • The only broad tourism industry categories with higher profitability ratios in the year ended March 2012 compared with that ended March 2008 were:
    • other transport, transport support, and travel and tour services
    • food and beverage services.
