Market Intelligence

Australian Wool Innovation provides various information services to its partners and woolgrowers. By undertaking a broad review of the global market for wool and competitor fibres, we are able to provide wool production forecasting, retail and trade market reports, consumer insights and trend monitoring, along with fibre market research.

We provide tangible economic value for our stakeholders. This section also contains weekly wool price reports as well as monthly market intelligence reviews.

As part of the AWI Wool Production Forecasting Committee, we also aim to provide the best possible estimates of future sheep numbers for the Australian wool production pipeline. This is done by producing consensus based authoritative forecasts of Australian wool production tri-annually.
