The defensive sector groups industries that are not influenced by the economic cycles. Industries that are part of this sector are, among others, the health industry, commodities industries and consumer products such as rice, cereal and alcohol. This sector has a much slower growth compared to other sectors studied by the Polyfinances analysts, but, in periods of recession or slow economic growth, it is likely to perform better than other financial sectors.
