Explosives Manufacturing in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Explosives Manufacturing in the US

In the five years to 2014, the Explosives Manufacturing industry experienced tepid growth. Although domestic coal production has risen over the past five years, demand from the Coal Mining industry (IBISWorld report 21211) has been volatile, which has adversely affected industry revenue. Fortunately for domestic explosives manufacturers, exports to emerging and newly industrialized countries like Mexico and China have provided a cushion against softening domestic demand. In the next five years, stronger demand from metal mining and lower input prices will drive growth and offset volatility in demand from coal mining. Revenue derived from domestic coal mining is forecast to slow, in light of increasing environmental concerns over the use of fossil fuels. As more electricity providers make the switch to natural gas and other cleaner energy sources, domestic demand for coal mining will continue to slide.

Operators in this industry manufacture explosives, blasting agents and oxidizers. Industry manufacturers may also be involved in the production of blasting accessories, such as blasting and detonating caps, fuses and cords. This industry does not manufacture pyrotechnics, ammunition, ammunition detonators or percussion caps.

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.
