- Private sector services together with accommodation and restaurant are expected to create jobs at the fastest rate of any sector in the economy for the next five years.
- The utilities sector produced jobs at the highest rate between 2010-2013, but it is not expected to continue doing so. Job growth in utilities is expected to slow from 8.16% between 2010-2013 to 1.29% between 2014-2019.
- The agriculture and forestry sector, while still the biggest part of the global market, will continue to shed jobs over the next five years, as it did between 2010-2013. The mining and quarrying industry is also expected to lose jobs.
