Off colour: Falling titanium dioxide prices early in the past five-year period caused revenue to decline

The Dye and Pigment Manufacturing industry is a very small component of the UK chemical sector. Over the years, it has gradually declined in global and domestic importance, mostly due to the demise of British textile industries. Because dyes and pigments are used in the textile industry, ink manufacturing and automotive industries, the Dye and Pigment Manufacturing industry's fortunes have been tied to the UK manufacturing sector. International developments are also important to the industry's performance, due to the level of international trade within the industry. Industry revenue is expected to fall at a compound annual rate of 1.5% over the five years through 2018-19, including a forecast 2% rise in the current year, to reach £1.1 more.

Intensifying competitive pressures, overcapacity and falling margins have created problems for operators. Industry revenue is expected to fall at a compound annual rate of 1.5% over the five years through 2018-19 to reach £1.1 billion. Industry revenue fell significantly during the first three years of the period due to weak demand from downstream industries. How...purchase to read more.
