Summary

Industrialization benefited society in numerous ways, for example without industrialization most people wouldn't have had jobs or would have been working as farmers for the rest of their lives. Another example is that without industrialization, we might not have had trains right now in the present and if we did they probably wouldn't have been advanced as they are now because of the advancement in technology and in other areas also.
