The METS sector is one of the industries identified by the Australian Government that will drive innovation, productivity and competitiveness and help Australia transition into smart, high-value and export focussed industries.
The Australian METS sector is a highly innovate and entrepreneurial sector comprised of approximately 2,500 firms which offers capital providers investment opportunities at different stages of the supply chain.
The 2015 Austmine survey revealed that 78 per cent of Australian METS invest in R&D and identified that innovation was core to their business strategy. In that same survey, as METS companies look to diversify, over half of the companies were looking to expand into new market segments and industries, of those companies approximately two-thirds also saw opportunities in oil and gas.
