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

Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

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. Inorganic chemical production depends on demand from downstream users such as automobile and plastic manufacturers. 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, despite the economic downturn, the industry quickly recovered in 2010 as downstream industries resumed production... 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.
