The Basic Materials Sector includes companies involved with the discovery, development and processing of raw materials. This includes companies engaged in the mining and refining of metals, chemical production and forestry products.
The basic materials sector is highly cyclical. It relies on a strong economy to create demand for its raw materials. Since most of its products are considered to be commodities, the sector is sensitive to supply and demand fluctuations, with end-users able to substitute based on price.
