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 16 and figure 12 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.

Points to note from table 16:

  • The profitability of total tourism-characteristic industries for the year ended March 2013 increased 0.5 percentage points compared with the year ended March 2012.
  • Only the tourism-characteristic industries of ‘other transport, transport support, and travel and tour services‘, ‘rental and hiring services’, and ‘arts and recreation services’ had lower profitability ratios than in 2012.  
  • The only broad tourism industry categories with lower profitability ratios in the year ended March 2013 compared with the year ended March 2009 were:
    • other transport, transport support, and travel and tour services
    • rental and hiring services.
