Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

The UK Chain, Spring and Wire Manufacturing industry has undergone a turbulent period over the past five years. The industry is heavily dependent on demand from downstream construction, motor vehicle and aerospace manufacturers. As a result, many chain, spring and wire manufacturers were negatively affected by the subdued economic conditions that characterised much of the period. Poor performance in the manufacturing sector negatively affected demand for the industry's products for much of the period. Weak conditions in the construction sector, in addition to fluctuations in steel prices, further exacerbated the industry's woes. IBISWorld expects industry revenue to decline at a compound annual rate of 4.9% over the five years through 2016-17, to reach £1.1 billion.
