Australia's export prices jumped by 13.2 percent on quarter in Q2 2021, after an 11.2 percent gain in Q4. This was the third straight quarter of rises and the steepest pace since Q4 2016, as a recovery from the COVID-19 hit accelerated. Main contributors to the rise were: metalliferous ores and metal scrap (18.5%), driven by the demand for iron ore from China and constrained global supply; coal, coke, and briquettes (15.6%), amid the demand for thermal coal for household power production in Asia; gas, natural and manufactured (14.6%), due to the oil-linked contracts capturing the continued rise in oil prices in early 2021; petroleum, petroleum products and related materials (12%), led by stronger oil demand and reduced global supply; and meat and meat preparations (10.1%), due to constrained global meat supply driving price rises across both beef and lamb. source: Australian Bureau of Statistics
