Historically, infrastructure was defined as the basic physical systems of a business or nation. This is outdated and is not relevant to modern infrastructure or business. For example, foundational cloud services that underpin business systems are viewed as infrastructure but certainly aren't physical.
Physical infrastructure such as roads are essentially services whereby they are come with services such as traffic control and maintenance.
The classification of what constitutes infrastructure changes with time as an economy advances. For example, payment services offered by financial institutions may have been viewed as regular services when they were first introduced but may become infrastructure as they begin to underpin more and more economic activity.
Nations may view entire industries as critical infrastructure. For example, the transportation or agricultural industry that are both required to feed populations.
