Consumer Goods - Industry

The Consumer Goods industry has been around since the earliest days of civilization. Ranging from utilitarian goods such as shoes and pens and pencils to cutting-edge technology such as iPods and smartphones, the advancement in manufacturing has led to efficient, high-tech factories and production factories today. This sector consists of companies that manufacture and sell products for consumer use, and other industries such as marketing, advertising, and brand differentiation have become key players in the Consumer Goods industry. Consumer goods, or final goods, are goods sold to consumers for their own use or enjoyment and not as a means for further economic production activity.
