Industry is one of the three economic sectors in Fate of the World. While it is more polluting and less lucrative than Commerce, it does not share that sector's unsustainability and risk of Financial Crisis.
Industry is the second growth state of a region's Economy, which grows after the Agricultural sector is well developed. Some regions begin the game with a far higher proportion of Industrial workers, such as China.
To avoid Financial Collapses it is usually nessesary to increase Industry to match any significant increases in the Commerce Sectors worldwide (given how little the Agricultural Sector contributes).
Key Issues concerning Industry are:
- Industrial sector fueled by dirty resources such as coal
- Significant pollution cause from Industry (Emissions and Toxicity)
- Heavy reliance on Fossil fuels to stay viable
