The purpose of the NDIS is to provide reasonable and necessary support to people with a significant and permanent disability to assist in achieving their goals. Participants receive individual budgets from which they choose the providers to support them.

The NDIS Market Report is part of a series of publicly shared reports released by the NDIA as part of the Agency’s commitment to sharing specialist data in addition to the comprehensive quarterly and other reports regularly released to assist stakeholders to understand market trends.

The report compares a number of market indicators across geographical regions and participant characteristics, and it shows the NDIS market is experiencing encouraging growth across most regions.

The key indicators have been calculated over the period of 1 October 2018 to 31 March 2019, with a deep dive showing how these indicators differ by region, participant cohort and support category.

The aim of this report is to support the purpose of the NDIS by comparing a number of market indicators across geographical regions and participant characteristics to identify “hot spots” where support provision is comparatively lower or higher than the rest of the NDIS market.

The market indicators include utilisation, market concentration, choice and control, participants per provider and provider growth and shrinkage.
