Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The Inorganic Basic Chemical Manufacturing industry plays an important role in the UK chemical sector, producing a number of intermediate products used as basic chemicals in either industrial processes or manufacturing products. Such products include colloidal precious metals (e.g. silver nitrate), chlor-alkali products, sodium cyanide, caustic soda and soda ash.

Reflecting the cyclical and global nature of the chemical sector, industry growth rates have been relatively volatile over the past five years. The economic downturn resulted in a sharp decline in industry revenue just prior to the five-year period through 2016-17 and the effects of the downturn continued through the early part of the period... purchase to read more

Chlorine and other inorganic basic chemicals

Chlorine and other basic inorganic chemicals include borates, hydrogen fluoride, potassium hydroxide and thiosulphates. Chlorine is used as an input for thousands of products and is used widely in domestic markets.

Given the wide range of products manufactured in the industry and the fact that each product is used by a variety of downstream sectors, each segment does not tend to vary significantly over time. Each product tends to serve similar markets and variability in demand tends to be the same for each product segment. It is expected that this segment's share of revenue will rise slightly over the five years through 2016-17.

What is the Inorganic Basic Chemical Manufacturing Industry?

Companies in the industry manufacture a wide range of inorganic basic chemicals. These are often produced in bulk and involve the large-scale conversion of simple raw materials into feedstock. These are then used as intermediate inputs by other manufacturing industries, including other components of the chemical sector. The industry excludes the production of titanium dioxide, nitric acid and ammonia and its derivatives.
