Sectors /



According to some economists, manufacturing is a wealth-producing sector of an economy, whereas a service sector tends to be wealth-consuming. Emerging technologies have provided some new growth in advanced manufacturing employment opportunities. Manufacturing provides important material support for national infrastructure and for national defense.
Manufactured finished goods may be used for manufacturing other, more complex products, such as aircraft, household appliances or automobiles, or sold to-wholesalers, who in turn sell them to retailers, who then sell them to end users and consumers.
