Industry Sector

European Commission - Eurostat
Industry sector covers the consumption of fuels by the industrial undertaking in support of its primary activities. Sectors include iron and steel; chemical,including petrochemical; non-ferrous metals; non-metallic mineral products; transport equipment; machinery; mining (excluding energy producing industries) and quarrying; food processing, beverages and tobacco; pulp, paper and printing; wood and wood products (other than pulp and paper); construction; textile and leather; not elsewhere specified.

Note: Energy used for transport by industriy is not included here but is reported under transport.

Latin American Energy Organization (OLADE)
An industry is an establishment classified as such in the “large division 3” of the Standard Industrial Classification.

Final consumption of the industrial sector consists of any energy source used in the processes that are carried out within the limits of the establishment, in which certain raw materials are transformed into final products.

This definition leaves out certain fuels that the industries purchase to facilitate delivery of their products to the market. It is common for certain industries such as beverages to distribute their products using their own vehicle fleet. However, that consumption belongs to the transportation sector.

Sometimes the distinction between industry and agriculture may not be very clear: the recommended criteria to solve doubtful cases is to consider as agricultural all activities carried out within the farm and as industry otherwise.

Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC)
Consumption of the Industry Sector is specified in the following sub-sectors (energy used for transport by industry is not included here but reported under transport):

- Iron and steel industry.
- Chemical industry of which: petrochemical feedstocks.
- Non-ferrous metals basic industries.
- Non-metallic mineral products such as glass, ceramic, cement, etc.
- Transport equipment.
- Machinery.
- Mining (excluding fuels) and quarrying.
- Pulp, paper and printing.
- Wood and wood products.
- Construction.
- Non-specified (any manufacturing industry not included above).

United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE)

UNSD Energy Statistics Section
Consumption in industry and construction - consumption in chemical industry includes use as fuel only. Fuels used by industrial producers of thermal electricity are shown under conversion to other forms of energy thermal power plants. It excludes consumption by energy sector and use as input in energy conversion industry.
