Downstream Sectors


Ajit Kumar AJIT KUMARWISDOM IAS, New Delhi.

Industrial firms that process the output of other firms (which are at the previous level of material processing) into a finished or different product. Examples are plastic manufacturers whose inputs come from petroleum processors, and agro processors whose inputs come from farmers or growers. Downstream industries are, in general, more stable and have higher profit margins than the upstream (raw material producing) industries.
