The answer to this question depends on your definition of an industry. Many industries, even in the third world, do not require or use technology. Some of these include: Agriculture: While modern farms may use GPS systems and precision agriculture tools, manual labor remains a large part of the process. Handicrafts: Artists who create handmade products such as pottery, textiles and furniture may not use computers in their work. Natural resource extraction: Mining, logging and oil and gas production rely on computer technologies for some aspects of the work, but much of this industry is still done manually.

Government services: While tech has changed the way consumers interact with government agencies — paying a traffic ticket, filing taxes, renewing drivers licenses etc. — it has not yet had a significant impact on the actual quality or efficiency of government services. For example, it's difficult to tell how quickly street lights are repaired or how fast snow is cleared after a storm.

Technology hardware, storage and peripherals includes companies that make cell phones, printers, computers and other electronic devices. It also includes companies that make communication equipment like routers and telephones as well as companies that distribute hardware and technology equipment. It also includes companies that make electronic equipment as Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM), which means they produce parts or components that are used in the manufacture of another company's end product, such as Dell computers using Intel processors and Windows.
