Task 5

Describe the trends of growth and decline for the sector in which Manchester airport operators and compare with other sectors.

There are 3 sectors or industries that businesses operate in. These are the:

-Primary Sector

-Secondary Sector

-Tertary Sector

Primary Sector:

Primary sector is involved in getting resources from the natural world. This includes farming. Primary industries can also be called extractive industries as natural resources are harvested.

Examples Include:

-Coal Mining

-Drilling For Oil

-Quarry

Secondary Sector

The secondary sector is involved in the second stage of production. At this stage the raw materials one made into finished or semi-finished products.

Examples Include:

-Brewing (making beer)

-Steel Manufacture

-Construction

Tertary Sector:

The Tertary sector is sometimes called the service sector. This sector provides services or sells products that can be consumed by customers.

Examples Include:

-Hotels

-Beauty Salons

-Clothing Shops

-Magazines

Manchester Airport is in the tertary sector because:

  • They sell products such as news agents, clothes shops and electrical shops.
  • They offer services such as cafes, food hall and flights.
  • The main service they provide is flights.
  • They do not manufacture on a large scale.
  • They do not extract raw materials.

This graph shows:

Most people work in tertary sector.

Very few people work in secondary sector.

Trends in the primary sector:

Over the last 30 years the primary sector has declined rapidly and continues to decline. This is due to several reasons:

1. The decline of the agriculture (FARMING) industry less natural resources.

-smaller farms are closing because bigger farms are using

-Machines to operate more cheaply.

-Disease (foot and mouth BSE).

2. The fishing industry has declined over the last 30 years because

  • There are less fish in the seas.
  • Pollution.
  • Low wages for fisherman.

3. In 1947 there were 750,000 miners [in 1993 there were 31,000 miners] in 2002                                                                                there were 11,000 miners. This is because

  • Coal is running out.
  • Electricity is more commonly used because it is easier and it causes les pollution.
  • Gas is used more than coal.
  • There is cheaper imported coal.

Secondary sector:

Manufacturing has seen a decline in the number of workers employed during the 80’s because

  • More technology this means that fewer workers are needed.
  • The industry is more capital intensive. This means they use machines instead of people.
  • Moving manufacturing abroad because of cheaper wages, cheaper raw materials and cheaper running gas cost electricity and companies moving abroad include m+s clothing, dyson and ford.

Tertary sector:

The tertary sector has massively expanded over the last 30 years because

  • People have more disposable income (money after the household bills have been paid) and because of minimum wage + higher incomes.
  • More women’s working means that they are wealthier and more independent + they will demand more services.
  • More people going to university mean people get better jobs and have more money to spend on what they like.
  • So people spend more and it is easier to get credit cards and loan money.
  •  As people become wealthier they want more services such as reastraunts, pubs, holidays and beauty hair salons.
