Strong Finish to Imports for 2013/14 Year
More bicycles were imported this June than in any of the previous four months of June, making for a strong finish to the 2013/14 financial year.
A total of 95,919 bicycles were imported for the month, being 38,846 children’s bicycles and 57,073 adult bicycles.
The financial year finished with 1,309,009 bicycles imported. This is over 100,000 down on last year’s record of 1,416,413, but is still the third highest financial year total on record.
Almost all of the drop from last year was in adult bicycles, with children’s bike imports being approximately the same as 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.
