Material goods

Material goods are tangible goods which represent a certain value.

In economics, all services or resources that serve to satisfy needs are generally referred to as goods. These can be services, rights of use or material goods. For example, a car is a tangible good, but the after-sales service of the vehicle is a service, i.e. an intangible good.

The patent for certain techniques in vehicle construction would be an ideal good. In some cases, the transition between different forms of goods is quite fluid. Material goods can be divided into durables and consumables.
