It goes without saying that the European industrial market sector is large and extremely important for the European economy. The companies included in this industrial ETF are generally speaking real global players so they are also very depended upon the state of the world economy.
A disadvantage for this industrial ETF is that Industry is a very long lasting and old market sector. Explosive growth is not to be expected anymore. Essentially this market sector is moving slowly, tracking the global economy. But it is a stable market sector.
Investing in this industrial ETF is not that difficult. Getting in after a period of downturn and getting out when thing go worse. But do not expect high short term gains.

Within this Lyxor Industrial ETF you will find 112 European shares of publicly traded companies, active in industry or providing services to industrial companies. This particular industrial ETF is tracking the STOXX Europe 600 Industrial Goods and Services Net Return index.
Looking at companies Siemens is leading here with an 8% share followed by Swiss ABB with just less than 5%. Schneider Electric has a 4% share. You will also find Airbus and Philips in this ETF.
The United kingdom is leading the country spread with a 25% share just before France with a 20% share. Germany is third with a share of 15%.
It always surprises me that we think that all big industrial companies are German but that is not the case. Germany is very strong in middle-sized family businesses but they are not included here as they do not have a quotation on an exchange.
