Organic growth: A rise in consumer spending will drive demand from downstream markets

The Organic Chemical Manufacturing industry in Canada is primarily engaged in the manufacturing of organic chemicals, including methanol, alicyclic hydrocarbon, ethylene glycol and fatty acids. Many industrial and consumer products, such as dyes, detergents, paints and adhesives, use organic chemicals as input materials. Consequently, industry performance is closely tied to consumer spending and the performance of the manufacturing sector. Over the past five years, the industry has benefited from steady economic growth domestically and from many export destinations, resulting in rising consumer spending, which has stimulated demand from a variety of downstream manufacturing more.
