Independent Brewing Industry Economic Evaluation

Urban and Regional Economics

The Independent Brewers Association (IBA) engaged Essential Economics Pty Ltd to prepare a national economic evaluation of the industry.

The evaluation included a national profile of the sector, economic impact analysis, benchmarking of global excise rates, identification of constraints to growth and potential areas for government action.

The findings of the study will enable the IBA to advocate for government support and reform to reduce existing industry constraints and ensure ongoing growth of the sector.
