Industry Breakdown for North American Industry Classification System

NAICS codes are broken down by digit. The broadest description starts with the 2 digit sector codes. The 3 digit subsector codes are more specific, then the 4 digit industry group, 5 digit industry (Where you are now), and the most specific is the 6 digit NAICS code. If the code on this page does not describe the industry of the business in question, then select the largest applicable code below. From there, follow through the progression of smaller digits to the larger digits in order to obtain the most specific 6 digit classification.

  • Sector 31-33: Manufacturing
    • Subsector 325: Chemical Manufacturing
      • Industry Group 3254: Pharmaceutical and Medicine Manufacturing
        • Industry 32541: Pharmaceutical and Medicine Manufacturing (Current Page)
          • 6 Digit Code(s) NAICS 325411: Medicinal and Botanical Manufacturing
          • 6 Digit Code(s) NAICS 325412: Pharmaceutical Preparation Manufacturing
          • 6 Digit Code(s) NAICS 325413: In-Vitro Diagnostic Substance Manufacturing
          • 6 Digit Code(s) NAICS 325414: Biological Product (except Diagnostic) Manufacturing
