New research by Roy Morgan shows that Australians are more likely to buy products across a wide range of industries if they know the product is made in Australia. Only a minority say the same about products they know are made in China. The largest differences are for food, wine, skin care and cosmetics. A huge majority, 88%, say they’d be more likely to buy food if they knew it was made in Australia, while only 6% say the same for Chinese-made food. The gap in favour of Australian-made wine is almost as large (72% vs. 4%). The next largest gaps in favour of Australian-made products are for skin care products (56% vs. 6%) and cosmetics (51% vs. 4%). Chinese-made products with the best performance include clothes, electrical goods, mobile phones and footwear. At least 20% of Australians indicated they would be more likely to buy these products if they knew they were made in China, although all trailed well behind Australian-made counterparts. These are the key findings from the Roy Morgan Single Source survey, derived from in-depth face-to-face interviews with 1,000 Australians each week and around 50,000 each year.
