Steady Start for Bicycle Imports in 2014/15

After 2013/14 finishing up as being the third highest financial year on record for bicycle imports, 2014/15 has started quietly.
116,573 bicycles were imported in July 2014, which was down slightly on both 2013 (121,435) and 2012 (123,122). This July’s total was comprised of 37,556 children’s bicycles and 79,017 adult bicycles.
Adult bicycles comprised 67.78% of the total which was almost identical to the same month last year.
Australian Customs collect bicycle import figures which are then collated by Bicycle Industries Australia (BIA). Full data including comparison tables and charts are made available to BIA members only. BIA has kindly permitted us to publish summary figures and commentary when each new month’s data is released.
