Buckle down: Import competition will force operators to rely on rising downstream demand

This industry is dependent on Canadian manufacturing activity and industrial output. Over the five years to 2019, falling shares of trade increased domestic demand, with industrial capacity utilization driving industry growth. Due to these factors, revenue is expected to increase during the period. Over the next five years, the industry is expected to experience a declining industrial sector. Industrial capacity utilization is expected to drop during the outlook period, hindering demand for conveyor belts as usage diminishes in periods of low production.

Due to the specialized nature of the hose and belt products manufactured by this industry, most facilities have various short production lines that must be periodically retooled to manufacture different products. Nevertheless, industry manufacturers primarily convert plastic resin, petroleum-based monomers and natural rubber into belts and hoses through an extrusion process. To reduce fixed costs per unit of output, manufacturers use a high-volume mechanized production line...purchase to read more.
