Australia is a very open and trade-friendly economy. This means that changes in the demand that other countries have for the goods and services of the location has a huge impact on the economy. When an increase in global demand occurs for Australia’s assets, it’s up to the traders in the marketplace to match that demand, or the price will go up.

Currently, Australia is the 23rd largest economy in the world for exports alone. The country is very diverse in what it can offer to other parts of the world. However, there are some major commodities that seem to make more of a difference to the results on your commodity trading apps than others.

Let’s take a closer look at how commodities impact the Australian environment, and what the changes in supply and demand might mean to people who are looking for new ways to build their wealth and diversify their portfolio.


Trade Booms

From the start of the mid 2000s, the prices of the commodities required for the production of energy and steel experienced a significant boost. This happened because global demand for these elements increased rapidly. Supply in the landscape was unable to keep up. In part, the growth in global demand came from a large need for energy and steel caused by industrialization in China and other emerging economies.

As the need continued to accelerate, Australia’s terms reached higher levels. Around 2011, the terms of trade moved over the 75% mark above the average for the previous century. The extraordinary prices of their key assets had an influence on other elements of the country’s operations too. Currently, the most valuable trades are Iron ore, gold, copper ore, wheat, and coal briquettes.

Australia also has a plenty of need from around the world for things like frozen bovine meat, aluminum, wool, wine, and sheep or goat’s meat, although these notable exports don’t quite match the desire for iron. When the need outweighed the supply in the country, this resulted in an increase in the number of workers in the mining industry too. There was also a rise in the amount that these professionals were paid.


The Changing State of the Economy

Ultimately, when the needs of the world change, the Australian landscape evolves too. While it does import a lot of crucial items, it also shares valuable resources with the world. The environment is particularly popular for its access to a huge amount of ore, including iron ore. It is currently the leading exporter of this substance by a significant margin – enjoying a massive 58% share of the market on a global basis.

Australia also stands out as the 6th largest exporter of gold with a 4.1% share of the market, and it contributes massively to the copper space too. Australia is number four on the list of countries delivering copper ore to other countries globally, with a 7.5% share of the landscape. For people interested in making money on the ever-changing environment there, it makes sense to start by looking at these powerful assets.
