Inorganic Chemical Manufacturing in Canada
Despite weak spots in some of the industry's major markets, the diverse uses for inorganic chemicals as well as the manufacturing sector's overall growth has allowed for steady gains in industry revenue. Over the five years to 2017, industry revenue is expected to increase steadily. Over the five years to 2022, the industry is expected to sustain growth. Demand from Canada's manufacturing sector is expected to contribute to this improvement in industry performance.
