Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

After experiencing years of revenue volatility due to fluctuating demand from downstream manufacturing customers during the recession, the Inorganic Chemical Manufacturing industry is in a state of recovery. The manufacturing sector promptly began to rebuild, boosting demand for inorganic chemicals throughout 2010 and 2011. Moreover, demand for exports has remained relatively steady in recent years. In the next five years, the industry will expand as demand from downstream industries continues to increase... purchase to read more

Chemical catalysts

Catalysts are chemical substances that change the rate of a chemical reaction. Catalysts that increase the reaction speed are called positive catalysts, while those that slow reactions down are called inhibitors. Over the past five years, emission control catalysts have become increasingly important to this segment. Emission control catalysts can reduce emission from cars and power plants. Automobile catalysts are often produced using platinum or palladium. Other uses include reducing dioxin from waste incinerators and emissions from chemical and paint factories. During the past five years to 2015, demand for chemical catalysts has increased due to the growing concern regarding climate change... purchase to read more

What is the Inorganic Chemical Manufacturing Industry?

This industry produces basic inorganic chemicals including titanium dioxide, chlor-alkali 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 used as pigments and dyes (IBISWorld report 32513) or pesticides (IBISWorld report 32532) are not included in this industry.
