ARIA compiles and collates wholesale (ie shipment to retailers and online sales and streams) sales statistics, based on the data submissions of its key members. Since 2019 ARIA has used this information to estimate the total Australian market, and from 2019 those total market figures are reflected in the media release and Yearly Statistics.
The information set out is for calendar years ending 31 December, and provide an interesting insight into the market over a lengthy period of time.
The figures are generally updated at the start of the second quarter of each calendar year, and values are presented in Australian dollars.
