While growth for the Chemical Product Manufacturing industry is expected to be sluggish over the next five years, demand will increase slightly. In particular, renewed activity in key downstream markets, such as automobile and construction, will drive marginal revenue growth. Still, because the industry also relies on sales of photographic film, plate and paper products, the transition to digital images will negatively affect this segment. Environmental concerns about plastics will lead to a surge in demand for reformulated plastic resins from recycled plastic products.
This industry manufactures a diverse range of chemical products. Key activities include custom compounding plastic resins and manufacturing toners, toner cartridges, photographic chemicals and sensitized photographic film, paper and plates. Custom compounding of plastic resins includes custom mixing and blending of purchased plastic resins and reformulating plastic resins from recycled plastic products.
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.
