The US is the world’s second largest manufacturer behind China.  In 2013, China represented 23.2% of the world’s manufacturing, the US had 17.2%, and Japan, the world’s third largest manufacturer, made 7.8% of the world’s goods.

Within the US, the five states with the most manufacturing output in 2014 were:

  1. California: $239.01 billion
  2. Texas: $233.20 billion
  3. Illinois: $101.28 billion
  4. Ohio: $99.83 billion
  5. North Carolina: $98.30 billion

Review the whole list here: National Association of Manufacturers

The top ten manufacturing sectors in billions of dollars are:

  1. Chemical Products – $345.7
  2. Computer and electronic products – $255.1
  3. Food, beverage, and tobacco products – $235.1
  4. Petroleum and coal products – $169.7
  5. Machinery – $144.6
  6. Fabricated metal products – $139.9
  7. Motor vehicles and parts – $138.0
  8. Aerospace and other transportation equipment – $123.2
  9. Miscellaneous manufacturing – $82.5
  10. Plastics and rubber products – $73.4

This is my Letterman style top 10 of the top 10.  That is, the top 10 producing states in each of the top 10 manufacturing sectors, except for Miscellaneous manufacturing, which is a little boring sounding so I replaced it with Primary Metals.
