Ceramics Manufacturing

The Ceramics Manufacturing industry produces a diverse mix of products, including advanced and technical ceramics, plumbing fixtures, kitchenware, pottery products and lightweight body armor.

This industry has contended with high import competition, which has been exasperated by increases in the trade-weighted index and weakened demand from the Semiconductor and Circuit Manufacturing industry.

However, growth in housing starts and increased demand from automobile electronics manufacturing have supported revenue growth.

Over the five years to 2021, industry revenue is expected to increase at an annualized rate of 1.8% to $2.6 billion.

This includes a 6.6% decrease in revenue in 2020 caused by the COVID-19 (coronavirus), which has greatly reduced downstream demand in construction and housing markets, as well as exports.

Nevertheless, research anticipates industry revenue to rebound 4.3% in 2021 alone.

Furthermore, overall import competition is expected to remain high during the current period, with imports expected to account for 81.3% of domestic demand in 2021.

Additionally, industry profit is expected to remain steady during the current period.

Cereal Production

Changing consumer trends and economic growth have translated into pressured demand for cereal over the five years to 2021.

Low-carb diets have grown increasingly popular, limiting the number of consumers buying cereal, while other health-conscious consumers are only interested in cereals made with healthy ingredients.

Moreover, industry revenue has been pressured as consumers have leveraged their rising disposable incomes to indulge in premium breakfast foods, such as breakfast sandwiches from restaurants.

Consumer preferences are increasingly shifting toward convenient and portable foods as free time becomes more limited, also hampering demand for industry products.

Nevertheless, cereal popularity has grown in recent years, particularly amid stay-at-home orders during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.

Consequently, industry revenue has increased at an annualized rate of 2.2% to $11.5 billion over the five years to 2021, including an increase of 0.7% in 2021 alone.

Chicken and Turkey Meat Production

Positive trends in demand variables and near constant demand from poultry processors have been outweighed by the price of poultry meat declining over the five years to 2021.

However, increased demand for chicken as a substitute for other meats, particularly red meat, has also helped limit revenue declines.

In addition, increasing health consciousness among US consumers has boosted consumption of white meat in general.

However, in 2015, the price of poultry meat began to decline significantly as the price of feed plummeted.

As feed is the largest input cost for meat producers, the price of feed is directly tied to the price of meat, including poultry and substitutes, such as beef and pork.

This decline has made the industry more competitive.

Industry revenue has decreased at an annualized rate of 3.4% to $29.6 billion over the five years to 2021.

Video Conferencing Software Developers

The Video Conferencing Software Developers industry is expected to expand rapidly over the five years to 2020.

The industry’s communications tools have increasingly become indispensable to the operation and continuity of large organizations, particularly large corporations.

This trend has been encouraged by several key trends shaping the corporate landscape, including highly globalized work forces, work from home policies and flatter organizational structures.

Additionally, the functionality and accessibility of video conferencing software has greatly improved as advancements have been made in both software and hardware during the period.

This seamless functionality and greater degree of integration has popularized the unified communications as a service (UCaaS) designation for more robust, enterprise-level platforms.

Overall, the industry’s product innovation and growing indispensability is expected to drive revenue growth of an annualized 25.9% to $7.3 billion over the five years to 2020.

The Video Game Software Publishing industry produces and distributes video game software for video game consoles, personal computers and mobile devices.

The popularity of smartphone video games and established console game franchises, such as Call of Duty and FIFA, stimulated industry revenue growth over the five years to 2020.

Moreover, mobile video games grew substantially as a portion of industry revenue over the past five years, alongside proliferating smartphone ownership.

According to Pew Research, smartphone ownership in the United States has risen from 59.0% in 2015 to 81.0% in 2019, bolstering access to and demand for mobile games.

Overall, industry revenue rose at an annualized rate of 9.1% to $28.5 billion over the five years to 2020, despite stunted growth of 1.5% in 2020 as the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic reduced consumer spending and confidence.

Video Games Software Developers

Operators in the Video Games Software Developers industry primarily develop video game software for use on computers, video game consoles and mobile devices.

Industry operators do not publish their software, which means industry software is developed independently or alongside a publisher.

First-party and independent developers are excluded, as these companies also handle publishing.

Most operators are second- or third-party developers, which means they are either part-owned or independent of larger industry publishers.

Operators may be contracted by a publisher to produce video game software, or they may sell the rights to their software to a publisher for distribution.

Industry revenue is heavily dependent on innovation within the broader Video Game Software Publishing industry (Research

report 51121e) in addition to consumer demand for video games.
