Australia energy markets outlook 2014 - overview

Australia energy markets outlook 2014 - overview

Report summary

While Australia's economy is heavily reliant on resource extraction and exports, the country has been experiencing a structural shift away from heavy manufacturing towards the commercial and services sector. Australia continues to maintain a strong industrial base, but weakening demand in the face of a stronger dollar, rising input costs, and weaker demand from Asia has cast a shadow over the future of Australia's metals and mining industry.

Due to their sensitivity to political events and the global economy, energy demand and trade remain extremely volatile. The rapidly changing cost environment for hydrocarbon production and renewable energy, combined with energy policy changes, means the fuel mix in energy markets can be unpredictable at best. Further complicating the outlook is the transition and pace of the energy-intensive developing world from industrial to services-based economic growth, supporting the growing need for power generation.
