It is very hard to be able to say which factor had a greater impact because to an extent both factors had a huge impact as they coincided with one and other. And basically if you removed one or the other you wouldn’t end up with the same colonies and there is no way of knowing which colonies we would have gotten either. In my opinion I think that the economic factors outweighed the religious factors in colonization.

Let’s not discredit those people who moved to the new colonies to be able to practice their own religion and have their own religious
This progression of manufacturing led to a larger middle class, as people found the desire to buy luxury goods for themselves once again, leading to economic enhancement. Nationalism was further highlighted by the Tariff of 1816 - the first tariff in American history, which was instituted primarily for protection, not revenue (Borneman 261).

Even though the Dutch and the Portuguese first saw it as a great trading post, the French and the British saw this as an opportunity to expand their land and a great economic opportunity with the trade of raw materials and new consumers. By 1767, after the French were defeated, the British begun to colonize all of India through direct and indirect colonialism. The East India Company controlled the country since 1600. As it gradually extended their power it had no choice but to make deals with local princes in areas to make trade profitable. These concessions are a great example for indirect rule.
