Man-made usually refers to things not found in nature that are produced by mankind, intentionally or accidentally. It can also refer to naturally occurring things that have been produced by artificial means.

These things can range from the simplest of molecules to gigantic machinery and buildings.

Many naturally occurring chemicals have been synthesized in order to acquire them more readily or in larger quantities than natural processes yield. Some everyday examples are vitamins and aspirin.
