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. As the production of cars and plastics decline, demand for inorganic chemicals also drops, negatively impacting industry revenue. Moreover, the economic downturn caused other manufacturing industries to decrease production, causing demand for inorganic chemicals to plummet. However, in the five years to 2019, IBISWorld expects the industry to steadily expand, as the economy and downstream industries recover. Furthermore, as the housing sector improves, demand from the construction, paint and glass manufacturing sectors will also increase... purchase to read more

Industry Report - Industry Locations Chapter

The Inorganic Chemical Manufacturing industry is mostly distributed according to population trends, as many major downstream manufacturing industries are located in more populous regions. Key states include Texas (12.1% of industry establishments), California (6.7%) and Ohio (6.1%). Traditional manufacturing strongholds such as the Southeast and Great Lakes regions have the bulk of industry establishments, combining for 47.0% of all establishments.

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.
