The industrial revolution started in the 18th century and it started first in the British region. After starting in the British region slowly, it has spread in European countries as well. On the 18th century, all the countries of Europe were focusing on industrial production rather than agricultural production. The electricity, cotton gain and other investors have changed the European society and Great Britain helped all the European countries a lot in this case. Cotton production was increasing on that time and therefore the overall the overall textile industry were growing. This was the main reason behind the industrial revolution.
The industrial revolution in Europe has started in Britain in the 18th century and the revolution spread throughout the world. The overall industry revolution mainly started with the textile industry. The overall industrial revolution in Europe did not happen in a day and it took time to spread. Europe has witnessed many opportunities on that time and this was the main reason behind the industrial revolution on that time. Many creative inventors were there and they played major role behind the success of the textile industry. Apart from this, the productive nature of Europe is the other thing that helped Britain to bring industrial revolution easily in the textile industry. The spinning frames were mainly created on the British island and after it have created on different places. As per Stearns, France was the major competitors of the Great Britain. Both Britain and France were successful on that time (2018, p.89). The supply of the cotton was increasing rapidly because of the rapid production and both Great Britain and France both were getting benefits because of this easily. Therefore, they were focusing more on the clothing production and thus these countries began to switch their investment from agrarian section to the industrial production. According to Inglehart, apart from this, Belgium was focusing on the industrial production because of the rapid production of the cottons and they were importing cottons from Britain for enhancing their textile industry (2018, p.12). In addition, this was one of the main reasons behind the industrial revolution in Belgium.
Spain, Greece and other Balkan countries were focusing on industrial production and they were getting help from the other European countries. Thus, they were improving. Germany has many small states and at the beginning, they were facing difficulties to transfer import cottons from one place to another. Hence, the industrial development of this country is slow compare to the other European countries. However, Netherland has little natural resources and they were facing difficulties to develop heavy industry throughout the country. Henceforth, they were focusing more on the agrarian products compare to the industrial businesses. Nevertheless, still they were getting help from the other European countries and this helped to develop their industrial production rapidly. Great Britain had many opportunities on that time and they helped other European countries. This was the main reason behind the happening of industrial revolution in Europe.
