  Heavy industry - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In general, heavy industry is viewed as more capital intensive, as requiring a larger fixed facility, and as having a larger environmental impact than light industry.
In the academic study of economics, heavy industries are often differentiated from light industries as heavy industries are capital intensive, and light industries are labor intensive.
Heavy industry is often defined by governments and planners in terms of its impacts on the environment.

 Industry - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An industry is generally any grouping of businesses that share a common method of generating profits, such as the "music industry", the "automobile industry", or the "cattle industry".
Industry in the second sense became a key sector of production in European and North American countries during the Industrial Revolution, which upset previous mercantile and feudal economies through many successive rapid advances in technology, such as the development of steam engines, power looms, and advances in large scale steel and coal production.
Following the Industrial Revolution, perhaps a third of the world's economic output is derived from manufacturing industries—more than agriculture's share.

 Superpower Dream Behind China's Heavy Industry Push
While heavy industry is a necessary backbone to long-term growth, Guo says, the shift away from a single-minded focus on light industry and service sectors will also better prepare China for true superpower status.
A heavy industrial sector could be used to create military equipment, to build on the nation's burgeoning space program, and to alleviate the international trade demands that have come from the Chinese trade imbalance in other sectors.
Heavy industries are also crucial to China's ambitions to expand its space programme.

 Music industry takes heavy fire
But this is actually the second time that the industry has settled rather than fight these charges--in 2000, the record companies reached a similar agreement to end a complaint by the Federal Trade Commission.
Setting aside the exact charges of these two cases, what the industry is clearly guilty of is a pervasive contempt for the Americans who support it to the tune of some $14 billion a year.
According to their own lobbying group, the Recording Industry Association of America, for every big hit, the major labels spend $6.3 million promoting at least 14 albums that don't succeed.

 The Epoch Times | China Investing Too Much in Heavy Industry: Scholar
Wu Jinglian, a well-known economist with the Development Research Center under China’s State Council, warned that lopsided government-promoted development in heavy industries such as iron and steel, nonferrous metals, building materials, and chemicals driven by real-estate, automobile and construction demands is harmful to the healthy sustained growth of the Chinese economy.
Even though he thinks developing heavy industries is necessary, Zhang agreed with Wu that the Chinese government meddles too much in the economy on both a local and national level, causing it overheat.
Zhang said, “The industrial structure throughout China is converging, and automobile manufacturing has become the key industry everywhere, along with petrochemical and steel industries.
