The Trend of Demised Industries During the course of this survey, a list of 31 demised industries was identified. This necessitated a study into the existence of these industries in the past. It was discovered that out of the 31 dead industries, 23 were owned by private individuals or communities, while the remaining 8 belong to the government.

A look at Table 2 shows the extent of the trend of demised industries over time. The flow of events started as early as 1970. For example, between 1970 and 1980, only three (3) industries collapsed. This is about 9.6% of the total collapsed industries. This increased to eight (8) between 1980 and 1981. This was the era of the Second Republic in Nigeria, when the issue of Import License grant was prominent and politicized. It became a great problem then because most proprietors of industries, who were not partisans, found it difficult to obtain licenses for importation of raw materials. Many industries suffered and were forced to shut down. It was also observed that the trend rose sharply to eighteen (18) between 1991 and 2000.
