In this post I have collected 25 examples of free industrial stock photos from our gallery. Industrial stock photos are always in high demand as they illustrate production, architecture and workforce. Industrial images are also popular to showcase industrial pollution on the environment, although many industries now focus on eco-friendly production.
Industry is a segment of the economy involving the manufacturing and transportation of products. Since the industrial revolution in the mid-18th century, the standard of living for the general population began to increase consistently for the first time in history. The industrial revolution saw the development and popularization of mechanized means of production as a replacement for hand production. It led to the development of factories for large-scale production with consequent changes in society.
Oil, mining, shipbuilding, steel, chemicals, machinery manufacturing and similar industries are examples of heavy industry. They are very capital-intensive, meaning that they require a lot of machinery and equipment to produce. Often, they are criticized for their environmental impacts.
The images below showcase different industries, work environment and industrial architecture. You are free to download the images and use them without attribution. For more free industrial stock photos please visit our gallery.
