An industry is the manufacturing of a good or service within a category. Although industry is a broad term for any kind of economic production, in economics and urban planning, industry is a synonym for the secondary sector, which is a type of economic activity involved in the manufacturing of raw materials into goods and products. “Industry” means any systematic activity carried on by co-operation between an employer and his workmen for the production, supply or distribution of goods or services with a view to satisfy human wants or wishes (not being wants or wishes which are merely spiritual or religious in nature), whether or not any capital has been invested for the purpose of carrying on such activity; or such activity is carried on with a motive to make any gain or profit.

There are four key industrial economic sectors: the primary sector, the secondary sector, the tertiary sector, the quaternary sector, and the quinary sector. The economy is also broadly separated into public sector and private sector, with industry generally categorized as private. Industries are also any business or manufacturing. Primary sector: These industries are involved in the extraction or production of raw materials such as mining, farming, fishing, forestry, coal mining, oil drilling, gold mining etc.


Secondary sector: The secondary sector of the economy includes those economic sectors that create a finished, usable product. These industries are involved in the processing of raw materials such as refining, construction, and manufacturing. This sector generally takes the output of the primary sector and manufactures finished goods for export, or sale to domestic consumers. Tertiary sector: These are the service industries, e.g. Transport, dentists, doctors, and so on. The capital required for a manufacturing business (secondary sector) is usually prohibitively large. Quaternary sector: A relatively new type of knowledge industry focusing on technological research, design and development such as computer programming, and biochemistry. It focuses on the latest technology. Examples of ‛Quaternary Industries‛ are designing new computers/writing computer software, Researching new medicines and medical equipment. Quinary sector: The sector comprises of health, education, culture, research, police, fire service, and other government industries not intended to make a profit. The quinary sector also includes domestic activities such as those performed by stay-at-home parents or homemakers. These activities are not measured by monetary amounts but make a considerable contribution to the economy.

The stages of evolution through which an industry progresses as it moves from conception to stabilization and stagnation represent an industry lifecycle. An industry has a beginning, with technological innovation; a period of rapid growth;


maturity and consolidation; and finally decline and possibly death. The stages of industry lifecycle include fragmentation, shake-out, maturity and decline. Developmental Stage: The first stage of the industry life cycle is developmental or formative stage. This is the stage when the new industry develops the business. At this stage, the new industry normally arises when an entrepreneur works out how to bring the new products or services into the market. The growth prospects are usually high. Competition is likely to enhance during the development of this stage as other entrepreneurs become acquainted with the market potential. High risks can be seen in this phase given that there is insecurity as to whether or not consumers will generally acknowledge the product, and which firms will continue to exist. Shake-out or growth stage: Shake-out is the second stage at which a new industry emerges. Consumer recognition extends the market as the leaders develop the product more. The risk in this stage reduces because of increased consumer acceptance and customer loyalty starts to come about. Competitors start to realize business opportunities in the emerging industry. Maturity: Maturity is the third stage in the industry lifecycle. This is by and large the most extended stage in the life cycle and can last for a good number of years. The competition in the industry is rather aggressive because there are many competitors and product substitutes. The growth rate slows down and becomes stable at a level that is sustainable over a long period of time, as a result of competition and shrinking profit margins. Some companies may shift some of the production overseas in order to gain competitive advantage.

Decline: Decline is the final stage of the industry lifecycle during which a war of slow destruction between businesses may develop and those with heavy bureaucracies may fail. In addition, the demand in the market may be fully satisfied or suppliers may be running out. Some companies may leave the industry if there is no demand for the products or services they provide, or they may develop new products or services that meet the demand in the market. In such cases, this will create a new industry.
