Industrial structure Introduction - Business Environment

Many different and diverse types of goods and services ranging from the production of cars to the delivery of legal services to farming can be produced by a country. The mix of these and the combination of industries that exist to produce them is called the industrial structure of a country. There are likely to be large differences in industrial structure between countries for many reasons. In this section we will look at the industrial structure of the European Union as a trading bloc and the United Kingdom in particular. There is a need for the industrial structure of a country to be measured in some way so that changes over time can be identified and international comparisons made. Here we will discuss

    • the problems with such definitions
    • the official classification of industry used by the government in the United Kingdom and
    • the changes in industrial structure and the causes of these changes.
