Industry Analysis & Industry Trends
IBISWorld projects a turnaround for the Carbon Dioxide Production industry over the five years to 2017, supported by mounting activity in downstream industries. With more money to spend on food and drinks, consumers will spur downstream demand from the respective manufacturers. Construction will also climb out of its recessionary slump, albeit slowly, to prop up industry revenue growth. Reduced reliance on US oil may sever some revenue streams for the industry, though; similarly, shifting consumer preferences away from carbonated soft drinks may also limit industry revenue growth over the period.... purchase to read more
Industry Report - Industry Locations Chapter
Industry establishments match the distribution of the Oxygen and Hydrogen Gas Manufacturing Industry (IBISWorld report 32512). This is because all industrial gas manufacturers produce both oxygen and hydrogen and specialty gases like carbon dioxide. Additionally, industrial gases can often be jointly produced. For instance, some carbon dioxide is produced when air is separated into oxygen and nitrogen.
Establishments are also located close to downstream customers, as long-distance carbon dioxide transportation is costly. As a result, the Southeast, Southwest and Great Lakes contain the bulk of industry establishments. The Southeast has an estimated 27.7% of all establishments, compared with 25.4% of the country's population... purchase to read more
