The industry sector, by all accounts that are coming from trading house analysts is poised for a take off after a subdued operations which can be traced back in some cases way back to the financial meltdown in 2007/08. But over the past 2 to 3 months, the prospects seem to be improving. Automotive stock has seen an appreciable appetite for growth with U.S. based companies like Ford and General Motors calling out improved demand in the months of September. Steel manufacturing has picked up in the same period albeit at lower prices when compared to its hay days in early 2012. Real estate too has picked up in most pockets which can be correlated to the dip in the unemployment rate in U.S over the same period.

These are specific to Industrial Sector and have been introduced in the back drop of improving macro economic conditions. On October 22, XLI found a new competition being introduced with Fidelity introducing 10 sector related ETF of which industrial sector was also one.
