Industry describes the production of economic goods and/or services. The word industry covers things such as large manufacturing plants like steel works right through to the more service based sectors.

The period in history where factories took over from home based production, is called the industrial revolution and when we think of the term industry we generally tend to invoke images of factories and plant work rather than service sector types of work simply because of the historical link to the industrial revolution and what that meant for our society.
