Manufacturing Market Research Reports & Industry Analysis

The Manufacturing sector covers work performed in mechanical, physical, or chemical transformation of materials, substances, or components into new products. Assembling of component parts for manufactured products also falls under this umbrella unless the activity is appropriately classified in Construction.

Manufacturing uses raw materials that are products of agriculture, fishing, forestry, mining, or quarrying, as well as products of other manufacturing operations. Plants, factories, or mills that characteristically use power-driven machines and materials-handling equipment, transform raw materials into finished products or components of products that require further manufacturing.

Also included within this sector are manufacturing that transforms materials or substances into new products by hand or in workers homes, as well as those engaged in selling products made on the same premises from which they are sold. Examples of these products include textile handcrafts, baked goods, custom-made golf clubs and fishing poles.

Manufacturing businesses often process materials or contract with other establishments to process materials for them. Both types of processing fall under the manufacturing classification.
