IMPACT OF INDUSTRIALIZATION What are the Effects of Industrialization? After the Industrial Revolution, many other countries followed Great Britain’s example and started to create new technology. The Industrial Revolution in the 1800’s led other nations to want new and easier ways to make goods. This was usually done by building factories and making cities larger. The Industrial Revolution is not the only time that this happened. When a country begins to use new technology, they are industrializing. Many times industrialization leads to the growth of cities. New jobs are created and people move to where the jobs are. Industrialization can have a negative effect on the environment by causing pollution. In the past, it has also lead to disease and child labor. Although industrialization makes it easy for people to create goods, it can cause new social and environmental challenges of a country if it is not managed carefully. © Copyright NewPath Learning.
