    high-value, low-volume production in businesses

    Dear friends,

    My question concerns an article about 3D-printing I've read on the Internet:

    "INDUSTRY continues to find multiple uses for 3D printing, especially in rapid prototyping and for high-value, low-volume production in businesses such as aerospace. "

    I don't completely understand the meaning of the term "business" here because it's written in the plural form. What does it mean here?

    Thanks

    Thanks! What's the meaning of "businesses" in my sentence? Does it mean the same as "industries"?
