Industry clusters are groups of similar and related firms in a defined geographic area that share common markets, technologies and worker skill needs. The Barossa Valley is a leading example of an industry cluster and recent research shows that the South Australian wine industry leverages the cooperative advantages gained from clusters better than most.
