Distribution of industries depend upon various physical factors like climate, raw material, water and power supply, labour, transportation, land, etc., and economic factors like capital, market and government policies.

Physical and economic factors vary from region to region and political factors vary from country to country. Industries are developed where physical and economic factors are favourable for their development, thus, distribution of industries is uneven.

For example, in India industries are concentrated in Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Delhi, Chota Nagpur region and in the rest of India, agriculture is the only major economic activity.
