Inorganic Chemical Manufacturing in the US

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 dropped, negatively impacting industry revenue. Moreover, the economic downturn caused other manufacturing industries to decrease production, causing demand for inorganic chemicals to consequently plummet. Nonetheless, in the five years to 2019, IBISWorld expects the industry to steadily expand, as the economy and downstream industries recover. Moreover, as the housing sector improves, demand from the construction, paint, and glass-manufacturing industries will also increase, slightly boosting revenue.

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 largely 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.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
