The Organic Chemical Manufacturing industry has experienced significant economic challenges in recent years. Lower industrial and manufacturing activity from emerging economies have led to depressed demand for organic chemicals produced by this industry. Over the next five years, ensuing economic growth will cause many of the industry's operators to increase their production levels as consumer spending rises and demand from key buying markets, such as consumer goods manufacturers and the construction sector, remains strong.
This industry manufactures basic organic chemicals (other than petrochemicals), industrial gases and synthetic dyes and pigments. Key product groups include gum and wood products, cyclic crudes and intermediates, ethyl alcohol and other basic organic chemicals. These products are predominantly intermediates that are used as raw material inputs by other manufacturing industries in the production of downstream products.
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.
