private sector

In an economy, the private sector is the segment of the economy in which privately held companies, small business?, corporations, and private industry compete to provide goods and services for private use to households and other businesses or institutions. In a market economy, participation in the private sector is motivated by the desire for profit.

It is distinct from the public sector and the voluntary sector, which provide public services, and are not profit oriented.
