Two main blocks are traditionally identified in Russia's economy structure: material production (manufacturing, agriculture, construction; transport, communications serving material production; trade, purchasing, procurement, public catering) and the non-production sphere (utilities, domestic services to public, transport; education, healthcare, culture, arts, science, science services, management and defense industries).

Similar to other developed countries, the Russian economy's industrial structure has largely changed in the recent decades. Impacted by a more important role of social factors, the share of population employed in the non-production sphere has increased as the share of material production workers has gone down. However, manufacturing remains central to the economy's industrial structure.

During the years of economic reforms Russia's manufacturing sector experienced profound structural transformations. Still one of the country's most important sectors, manufacturing provides for the people's needs in many goods, including food products.

The following industries remain dominant in Russia's manufacturing sector: energy; power generation and distribution; gas and water production and distribution; forestry and lumber; metallurgical production and finished metal products; electric, electronic, and optical machinery production; chemical production; processing sectors.
