ZIMSEC O Level Geography Notes:Types of Industrial Location:Market and Location of industries

  • Some industries are market-based not because their products are heavier than the raw materials making them, but because they are perishable.
  • Examples are opaque beer and milk.
  • Some of them locate close to the market because they gain value upon manufacture for example, furniture which is more valuable and fragile compared to planks.
  • Others locate at the market simply because they need the huge buying power of urban markets, for example, printing, TV, car and radio assembly, garment making or shoe making factories.
  • Yet others locate close to the market, usually a town or a city because of the existence of skilled labour, for example watch making and garment manufacture.
