Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

The Chemical Product Manufacturing industry's revenue has been relatively volatile over the past five years. Demand for industry products is largely influenced by the level of activity in the wider manufacturing sector, as well as the construction and the service sectors, though these sectors affect the industry to a lesser extent. The industry also has a highly international orientation, which makes it significantly exposed to international markets in terms of both its key raw material inputs and the full range of outputs. As a result, the value of the pound, as compared with the currencies of key trading partners, can have a significant influence on demand volumes, total revenue and profit margins due to the effect it has on input costs and exports.
