Although bleach products are staple goods, operators in the Bleach Manufacturing industry suffered during the recession from reduced consumer spending and slowdowns in downstream industries such as restaurants and janitorial services. With little product differentiation in the industry, more consumers opted for low-cost generic products during the downturn, leading to a slight contraction in revenue.
