Economy

The commerce of Ongole was largely started by agricultural families within Prakasam district. Ongole is one of the major centres for tobacco trading in Andhra Pradesh. During 72's and 80's many enterprises were setup in small scale manufacturing like shoes, paints, PVC, pharmaceuticals etc. But, majority of these had their run and did not survive their competitors from other parts of Andhra Pradesh or out of state. This happened despite the fact that some of these companies are early adopters/manufacturers of the products in the coastal districts of AP. One reason could be that capital/human resources availability as well as lack of business leadership availability for these entrepreneurs. 80's and 90's saw proliferation of hospitals and educational institutions (Secondary School, Intermediate). The later 90's saw the advent of Granite Industry. The availability of Black Galaxy granite nearby has resulted in the proliferation of granite mining, stone cutting and polishing unit companies around Ongole, India.
