About This Report


Fundamental elements

As a key intermediary within the supply chain, the Chemical Wholesaling industry plays an important role in overall chemical manufacturing. Since 2006, the industry's revenue growth has been inconsistent. Looking ahead, the industry is projected to experience higher demand from the manufacturing and construction sectors, which will drive revenue in a way similar to recovery conditions seen in 2010 and 2011. On a negative note, increased government legislation and higher oil prices will raise chemical costs and squeeze profit margins.

Establishments in this industry engage in the merchant wholesale distribution of chemicals and allied products including compressed gas, chemical additives and synthetic rubber. This industry excludes the wholesaling of agricultural and medicinal chemicals, paints and varnishes, fireworks, plastics materials, and basic forms and shapes.

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.
