Basic materials sector

Published: October 25th, 2020 - 10.03pm EDT
The basic materials sector (also known as basic industries sector) is an industry category made up of businesses engaged in the discovery, development, and processing of raw materials. The sector includes companies engaged in mining and metal refining, chemical products, and forestry products. Within this sector are the companies that supply most of the materials used in construction. That makes the companies and their stocks sensitive to changes in the business cycle. They tend to thrive when the economy is strong. The category is sometimes referred to simply as the materials sector.
