Research completed by Roy Morgan* on Australian-made purchasing habits, show that Aussie consumers still prefer to buy Australian made. Despite the China free trade agreement resulting in cheaper prices of items manufactured in China, 89% of Australian Consumers surveyed say they would prefer to buy a product made here.
In an online survey conducted with businesses, the results show a quarter (26.2%) of businesses surveyed have a policy in place to purchase items manufactured in Australia. Almost half (48.2%) indicated they prefer to purchase Australian-made items.
This is motivating news for Australian manufacturers. Buying items made in Australia helps local workers maintain employment and helps keep trade skills, specialised equipment and inventions stay in Australia. It creates better opportunities for the next generation of workers and also has a positive impact on the economy.
