On the basis of raw materials, industries can be classified into agro-based industries and mineral-based industries. Agro-based industries are different from mineral-based industries in the following ways:

Agro-based industries     Mineral-based industries
These industries use agricultural products
as raw materials such as cotton and jute.
These industries use minerals as raw
materials such as bauxite and iron ore.
