AUD- Private capital expenditure
The downturn in the Australian mining space pressures to reduce of capital expenditure for the fifth quarter in a row. Since 2014 Q4 the Private capital expenditure has been reducing. The non-mining related capital expenditure has been weaker than expected.
The Q4 2015 CAPEX is expected to reduce to 3.0% compared to a slump of 9.2% in an earlier quarter.
Senior economist Gareth Aird of Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) said in a recent note that the reason non-mining investment is taking so long to pick up may be because expectations of future demand are too low to justify a lift in investment.
