The Consumer Goods and Services
sector category includes industries and companies focused on manufacturing, distributing and marketing finished products that will be used by the general public. Also included here are links to categories covering personal service industries and companies that provide services to the consumer market (note: most of the consumer services categories exist elsewhere in the ODP, and are represented here by @links).
- Industries and companies focused on providing professional and administrative services primarily to other businesses are listed under Business/Business_Services.
- Producers and supplies of the materials, substances, components, machinery and other industrial technology used in manufacturing goods are listed under Business/Industrial Goods and Services. However, producers and suppliers of materials, substances, components, machinery and other industrial technology used in the manufacture of specific consumer goods are listed under Consumer Goods and Services (e.g. a manufacture of fans for use in home appliances; or water heaters for consumer as well as commercial use).
