Light industry is any manufacturing or construction industry that doesn't involve heavy and capital intensive products or production equipment. The term heavy industry is reserved for the most capital intensive of all industries. Most manufacturers are considered light industry.

Light industry are industries that usually are less capital-intensive than heavy industry and are more consumer-oriented than business-oriented, as they typically produce smaller consumer goods.

manufacturing of clothes, bulbs, furniture items like sofa, steel almiras (cupboards), match boxes, computer assembly, electronic gadgets, household appliances like a mixer and cooker, manufacture of TV, leather or cloth or plastic bags, making of glass items or lenses etc.
