Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Industry operators depend on sales to downstream industries that use these secondary products. As manufacturing and construction activity have expanded, so has demand for products made with inorganic chemicals. Some demand from purchasers, such as alumina producers, grew more quickly and stimulated greater sales early in the period. Others took longer to recover, or experienced volatile demand over the past five years. Consequently, IBISWorld expects revenue to decrease an annualized 0.4% over the five years to 2016 to $35.4 billion... purchase to read more

Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

Over the five years to 2016, the Inorganic Chemical Manufacturing industry has experienced a slight decline. Inorganic chemical production depends on demand from downstream users in an array of industries, ranging from paper production to oil refining. Industry products are used for many applications, which insulates diversified producers from a degree of volatility. At the same time, many industries are linked to one another and a decline in one may reduce production in others. For instance, oil and gas production affects not only refining activity, but also the price of certain inputs of organic chemical production, which also uses inorganic chemicals... purchase to read more

What is the Inorganic Chemical Manufacturing Industry?

This industry produces inorganic chemicals including titanium dioxide, chloralkali products and carbon black. Inorganic chemicals are mineral based, while organic chemicals are carbon based (see IBISWorld report 32519 Organic Chemical Manufacturing). Inorganic chemicals are mainly used as inputs in manufacturing and industrial processes. Inorganic chemicals are used as pigments and dyes (IBISWorld report 32513) or pesticides (IBISWorld report 32532) are not included in this industry.
