The sector includes the mining and refining of metals, chemical products and forestry products. The basic materials sector is sensitive to changes in the business cycle.

Because companies in this sector supply materials for construction, they depend on a strong economy. Some of the most common materials covered within the basic materials sector include any mined materials, such as metals and ore, as well as forestry products, such as lumber.
