Sectors and Industries

Despite some overlap, the meanings of the terms ‘sector’ and ‘industry’ differ slightly. While these terms are sometimes used synonymously as an economic taxonomy to collectively classify a set of business entities that operate similarly or exist within a particular economic ecosystem or sphere, they each have distinct areas of focus.

Based on size, the 11 macroeconomic sectors are generally listed as follows:

  • Information Technology
  • Health Care
  • Financials
  • Consumer Discretionary
  • Communication Services
  • Industrials
  • Consumer Staples
  • Energy
  • Utilities
  • Real Estate
  • Materials

What are the major economic sectors and industries?

As outlined in a commonly used global index or framework devised by various stakeholders in the economic and finance sphere, the global macroeconomy is generally divided into 11 main sectors and 24 industry groups, depending on the primary business activities undertaken by different companies in each collective segment.

This classification tool enables investors to compare industry trends between well-defined subsectors in the market and thus make better informed investment decisions.

Our focus here is on the various major sectors in which our clients may have an interest in transacting. According to current predominant macroeconomic knowledge and practices, there are several main sector areas that make up economies depending on the business activities that take place within each, namely: primary, secondary and tertiary; and more recently, two additional sectors, which have been defined over and above these, that is: quaternary and quinary. The different economic sectors are distinguished as follows:

  • Primary: Involving the retrieval, extraction and production of raw materials—such as wheat, corn, fish, livestock, wood, precious metals or fossil fuels etc.— by certain industries (For example, through farming and agriculture, and mining.)
  • Secondary: Involving the manufacture and construction of tangible goods by particular industries by transforming, converting or refining—and thus adding value to—raw materials such as: cars made from steel, clothing made from textiles, and buildings constructed from bricks etc. (For example in workshops, factories, mills, refineries, processing plants and breweries, and via building and construction activities.)
  • Tertiary: Involving industries or businesses that service other industries or businesses in the primary and secondary sector industries, and the consumers who purchase from these businesses (For example, through the financing, transportation, distribution and sale of the tangible goods made using the raw materials; and through the provision of services such as babysitting, entertainment, banking/accounting and retail outlets.)
  • Quaternary: Involving industries or businesses that provide intellectual, creative or information services, technology and activities referred to as knowledge-based. This generating, analysing and disseminating of information is frequently aimed at future growth and innovation. (For example, through the offerings of scientific and other research and development, media and entertainment, ICT/computing, education, consulting, information generation, sharing and management, and financial planning.)
  • Quinary: Involving industries which overlap somewhat with the quaternary sector, and where the focus is on providing hospitality and human services and control, including some charities and public service or government activities where high-level socio-economic decisions are made, as well as the non-routine use or creation of new technologies and information (For example, C-Suite executives or top officials in science, tertiary education, corporate environments, health care, media, culture and in government and law enforcement/health and safety spheres. Domestic activities such as those that are generally unpaid but add value to the economy and are performed in the home or in caretaking capacities are sometimes included in this definition.)
