The Adhesives, Cleaning and Other Chemical Product Manufacturing industry produces a wide range of disparate products servicing a variety of markets, both industrial and consumer. Key products include adhesives, other prepared glues, essential oils, natural resins, household cleaners, polishers and removers. Despite its disparate nature, the industry is still a noteworthy component of Australia's chemical manufacturing operations, accounting for roughly 7.0% of the general chemical manufacturing sector's employment.
Companies in this industry primarily manufacture or formulate polishes or cleaners (except abrasive), waxes, dry cleaning preparations, essential oils (refined or crude), adhesives (except bituminous) or other chemical products not elsewhere classified. Inputs are often sourced from other components of the chemical industry then sold to various industrial segments and the household market.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
