Manufacturing and service industries in the City of Detroit, Michigan are the focal point of this guide.

Although many of Detroit's traditional industries have closed or have declined over the past fifty years or more, and the city has experienced a steady population decline since 1950, several major corporations are based in Detroit, including a few Fortune 500 companies. Although its automotive industry is not as strong as it once was, it continues to be among the most significant manufacturing industries in the city. Other strongly represented industries include finance and technology.

Among the top employers in Detroit are Quicken Loans, Chrysler, Blue Cross Blue Shield, General Motors, DTE Energy, Compuware, Detroit Diesel, Comerica, Deloitte, Johnson Controls, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and Ally Financial.

Other companies based in Detroit include Shinola, American Axle, Campbell Ewald, and Rossetti Architects, while Fifth Third Bank, HP Enterprise, KPMG, and Ernst & Young have large offices in the city.

Several of the industries in downtown Detroit are relatively new, as companies have moved from satellite suburbs in the Metro Detroit region into the downtown region. Compuware moved its world headquarters to Detroit in 2003, and Quicken Loans established its world headquarters in downtown Detroit in 2010 after consolidating its suburban offices.
