There are numbers of industry in and around Jhelum City. Major industries include a Tobacco factory, wood, marbel, glass and flour mills.
District Jhelum is quite poor in agriculture production. The major crop is wheat, annual average production of which during the period 2005-08 was 94.56 thousand M. Tons.
There are already 12 flour mills in district Jhelum. Therefore, establishment of additional flour mills is not advisable.
Fruit and vegetables are grown in small quantities which are not sufficient to meet the overall requirement of the district. Therefore, there exists very good potential for cold storage in the district, so that the vegetables/fruit purchased from other district would be preserved for short period to maintain regular supply in the local markets.
As per Punjab Development Statistics 2008, the population of cattle, buffaloes, sheep and goats was 167, 146, 59 and 303 thousand heads respectively. As regards poultry, there are 371 broiler and 80 layer poultry farms having rearing capacity of 6951 and 269 thousand birds respectively. The annual availability of hides and skins is estimated at 136 thousand pieces.
In view of relatively small size of livestock as compared to other district of Punjab, there exists good scope for organized dairy farms, cattle/goats/sheep fattening farms, cattle/poultry feed mills. Leather shoes and leather products unit can be established in the district.
District Jhelum is quite rich in minerals, Rock Salt, Brine, gypsum, coal are being excavated in the district.There are already three cement and one soda ash manufacturing units operating in the district, However, the industrial potential of Bentonite, Dolomite and Coal is not yet exploited.
After a careful study, a power generation unit based on Coal may be established. Bentonite/Dolomite processing units, Cooling / Iodonised / Pharmaceutical grade Salt manufacturing units also seems to be feasible projects.
In view of the cement factories operating in the district and making arrangement with WAPDA and Railway Departments, Concrete Railway Sleepers and Electric Poles manufacturing units possess very good prospects. The existing chip-Board/Ply-Wood Units suggest good prospects for Flush Door / Panels and Furniture Units.
Considering the localized requirements and existing industrial pattern in the district, there exists good scope for Body Building for Suzuki / other Pick-ups which are commonly used for transportation purposes, steel door / windows, protection grills, steel fabrication, desert coolers, gas appliances, brush manufacturing, laundry soaps, biscuits, etc.
