It is easy to assume that most industries are on the decline during the current economic climate of late; however, some Australian industries are experiencing exponential growth despite natural disasters and the recent pandemic. We look at the top four fastest-growing industries in Australia that are predicted to continue to rise throughout this year:
The manufacturing industry
The current pandemic has made us all rethink the manufacturing process and the ability to create products onshore. Local quality, availability, and sustainability are at the forefront of business minds as they weight up the benefits of sourcing locally rather than offshoring at a lower cost. While there is a discussion about bringing manufacturing back onshore to Australia, it is unlikely to be through traditional mass production. Instead, it is expected that Australia’s manufacturing sector will be transformed into an export-focused ecosystem.
If your Australian businesses are starting to look locally for manufacturers, or if you are a growing local manufacturing business, there’s some good news as we may see an influx of incentive backing manufacturing segments that are seen as critical to national resilience and sustainability. Governments are expected to use domestic manufacturing as part of their plan to rebuild Australia post the current crisis.
If your manufacturing business is growing quicker than anticipated, contact one of our Australian virtual assistants who can assist in administration, business development, customer service, sales & marketing AS Virtual Solutions provides structure, growth and strategic planning through valuable business development for growing Australian Manufacturing businesses.
2020 has highlighted the importance of key workers, not the mention, the incredible work of the broader Australian healthcare industry. But, well before the pandemic, the healthcare industry was set to see strong demand due to Australia’s growing and ageing population.
It is no surprise that hospitals are an increasing priority for governments and healthcare providers to ensure the support of a healthy population. Australia is set to see a dramatic growth in hospital infrastructure development with funding increasing in every state and territory; creating opportunities to explore new ways of treating patients with patient-centric care remaining a top trend in healthcare.

Food and grocery manufacturers and suppliers have been working around the clock to keep the shelves stocked with essential products for everyday Australians.
Online food & beverage retailing are becoming the fastest-growing product category in eCommerce, with time-poor consumers, especially those living alone, favouring convenient and competitively priced goods that can be purchased weekly online.
