Overview: Australian wine – one of our most successful export products
Australia currently has over 2000 wine exporters sending tens of thousands of different wines to 119 destinations worldwide.
Global demand for Australian wine fuelled extraordinary growth in wine exports between 1991 and 2007, during which period they increased in value from $212 million to over $3 billion.
A number of factors combined to hit the sector between 2007 and 2013, causing volumes and values to fall, but the last four years have seen strong signs of recovery, driven mainly by demand for Australian red wines in North East Asia, particularly China.
Australia’s top five export markets by value as at year ending March 2020 are:
- Mainland China (40 per cent of total export value)
- United States of America (14 per cent)
- United Kingdom (12 per cent)
- Canada (6 per cent), and
- Hong Kong (4 per cent)
Wine exports grew by 3 per cent in value to $2.87 billion in year ending March 2020, while volume declined by 11 per cent to 728 million litres. Growth has been strong in higher price segments, reflecting growing demand for Australian premium wines.
