Industries in Brazil

  • Major industries include iron and steel production, automobile assembly, petroleum processing, chemicals production, and cement making; technologically based industries have been the most dynamic in recent years, but have not surpassed traditional industries.
  • Likewise, food-processing, sugar industries, cotton textiles, silk and woolen industries are well developed. 
  • South and south east is concentrated by most of the large industries. Brazil's northeast has traditionally been its poorest region, but it is starting to draw new investment.


With the help of the pie chart given in fig tell what is the contribution of secondary activities in Brazil's GDP?

National income is the money value of all the final goods and services produced within the domestic territory of the country during a particular period of time, generally within a year. A boost in the national income would be with the improvement of the secondary and tertiary sector. The history of all the developed countries shows that their development is by the improvement of both the secondary and the tertiary sector. The manufacturing industry in Brazil is contributing nearly 27.5% in the GDP.
