Let A be a (non-unital) commutative Banach algebra. We consider when A has a variety of factorization properties: we list the (obvious) implications between these properties, and then consider whether any of these implications can be reversed in various classes of commutative Banach algebras. We summarize the known counter-examples to these possible reverse implications, and add further counter-examples. Some results are used to show the existence of a large family of prime ideals in each non-zero, commutative, radical Banach algebra with a dense set of products.
