Industry is the production of goods or services within an economy.<ref>Industry | Define Industry at Dictionary.com</ref> The major source of revenue of a group or company is the indicator of its relevant industry.<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref> When a large group has multiple sources of revenue generation, it is considered to be working in different industries. Manufacturing industry became a key sector of production and labour in European and North American countries during the Industrial Revolution, upsetting previous mercantile and feudal economies. This occurred through many successive rapid advances in technology, such as the production of steel and coal.

Following the Industrial Revolution, perhaps a third of the world's economic output is derived from manufacturing industries. Many developed countries and many developing/semi-developed countries (People's Republic of China, India etc.) depend significantly on manufacturing industry. Industries, the countries they reside in, and the economies of those countries are interlinked in a complex web of interdependence.
