FULL REPORT NOW AVAILABLE!

This comprehensive report is the only source of detailed estimates and forecasts for Australia’s $40+billion maintenance market, based on our extensive analysis and original market research.

Maintenance in Australia 2016 – 2031 covers 12 broad industry sectors across transport infrastructure (roads, rail, ports/harbours), utilities (water/sewerage, electricity, gas pipelines, telecoms), light & heavy industrial facilities, mining, defence and non-residential buildings. Each sector has its own drivers and outlook for maintenance activity, and how and under what terms it will be undertaken.

For each industry sector we identify and discuss the drivers of spend, key tasks, current trends and expected future developments in the rate of outsourcing, the impact of privatisations and asset sales, bundling of maintenance tasks into single contracts, developments in owner / manager / service provider relationships, and perceived strengths and weaknesses of different contracting methods. The implications of construction / economic cycles, government finances and business profitability are also examined. 

Qualitative Information & Industry Market Research
BIS Oxford Economics conducts an extensive survey of purchasers of maintenance services (the owners, lessees or managers of the assets) across each industry sector, to gives us a unique understanding from the client’s perspective, of issues, trends and future requirements. We interview organisations such as state road authorities, rail infrastructure owners, port authorities, water boards, government departments, private sector companies, and individual facilities such as large hospitals and mine sites. Contact us to discuss some of the key questions we’re exploring – details on right.

Market Data and Forecasts

The report contains detailed market data and forecasts for 12 broad industry sectors, with the value of current maintenance work done broken down by:

  • who does the work (contractors vs in-house)
  • type of contract (lump-sum, schedule-of-rates etc.)
  • type of maintenance work (where the breakdown varies by sector)
  • state and territory

National forecasts of total maintenance activity, along with the value of contestable work in each sector, are provided annually for the next five years to 2020/21, followed by two five-year averages to 2030/31.

Our robust forecasting methodology takes into account:

  • projections of capital stock in each sector, based on BIS Oxford Economics' extensive forecasting reports, covering all types of investment and construction activity
  • forward expenditure and outsourcing plans
  • government policies with regards to future outsourcing and contestability
  • investigating sustaining capital following a period of increased investment in capital stock
  • analysis of the cyclicality of expenditure in each sector, and assessing the implications arising from our forecasts of the Australian economy
