Revenue for the Disinfectant Manufacturing industry has been volatile over the five years to 2016; however, growth has been positive every year. Over the period, demand from downstream users grew, increasing overall demand for industry products. However, export growth soon slowed as the appreciating dollar rendered industry products more expensive in foreign markets. Fortunately for industry operators, demand from consumers for the industry's relatively affordable products began to pick up as disposable income levels rose. Over the next five years, the industry is set to expand. Product development and rising demand from accommodation and food service customers, hospitals and households will foster this expansion. Moreover, as downstream customers continue to consolidate their operations, manufacturers will likely consolidate to maintain pricing power and protect their profit margins.
