Difference between Industrial and consumer marketing

Couple of days before I came across with a question “What is the difference between industrial and consumer marketing, so I tried to explore it and as per my opinion following are the differences:
Industrial marketing is the marketing of goods and services from one business to another (B2B "Business to Business").. Industrial goods are those which are used in Industry for producing a Different end product from one or more raw materials. The word "industrial" means machinery run by power to produce goods and services.
Consumer marketing is the marketing of goods and services from business to the consumer (B2C "Business to Consumer").

This difference can be better understand by the following comparison:
