    Location of industries are based on different factors such as climatic condition of region, raw material availability, labor, market availability, Transport facilities etc. Cotton textile industry rapidly expanded in Mumbai because of black soil for farming in Maharashtra region. Black soil of Maharashtra is good for cotton. Also it is easy to import from other country through port. Large population and cheap labor is available.

    Factors influencing the location of an industry are-
    (i) Raw material (ii) Availability of power/energy for running the industry (iii) Transportation facility to carry raw material and manufactured goods (iv) Water (v) Availability of skilled and semi skilled labor (vi) Market facility and employee friendly environment like facility of school/colleges, medical facility etc.

    Iron and Steel Industry is referred as backbone of modern industry, because most of the things we use are made of iron/steel. In our surrounding tools, machinery, vehicles, utensils etc. are made of iron and steel.
    Drilling and cutting tools are made of iron and steel. To construct a large building steel frame work is done.

    Cotton industry was rapidly expanded in Bombay because of human friendly climate, availability of raw material, skilled and semi skilled labour and energy sources to run the industry. Good transportation facility to carry raw material and transport manufactured goods.

    Similarities between Bangalore and California to develop IT industry are-
    Similar climatic condition, human friendly environment and atmosphere, availability of market and skilled labour. Good transportation facility in both the places.

    Lot of information given by members regarding placement and other attributes for industries. I want to add that today the industries are highly influenced by the changing technologies and in such a scenario they are changing their products and sometimes even locations to cope up the dynamic business environments nationally as well as globally.
    Many major US companies have opened their manufacturing units in Asian countries to reduce the labor costs. Today in India also lot of industrialization and globalization is taking place at a very fast pace and industries are realigning themselves in this changing environment.
    Availability of cheaper raw materials else where are forcing companies to reform their strategies as local raw material cost are becoming more than that of far off place even after considering the transport charges.
