Amidst the sharp drop in commodity prices weakening demand from its key partners and rising capital imports Australia's trade has recorded growing deficits in recent years with a record low of AU$3.9 billion in April 2015. The trade balance is expected to improve through to 2020 with the ramp up of LNG export projects in eastern Queensland offshore Western Australia and Northern Territory. LNG projects will be the key driver of the domestic energy demand in the form of energy losses in liquefaction plants. Excluding losses demand growth will be quite limited across sectors. Domestic demand for coal and gas is under pressure due to higher competition from renewable generation particularly wind and solar.
