Firms within an industry are horizontally integrated if they all specialize in a single process, for example making tin cans. Firms within an industry are vertically integrated if each firm tends to carry through the production of a commodity from the raw material stage right up to the finished product. An industry in which the firms brewed beer, bottled it, and sold it in their own bars would be an example of vertical integration.
