Advanced U.S. Manufacturing [Infographic]

For most Americans, “Made in China” just doesn’t cut it anymore. In fact, 80% of US consumers say they prefer to buy American-made products and 60% say they are willing to pay 10% more for products that are produced in the States. While a large portion of our imported goods still do come from China, the steady growth of advanced US manufacturing is making big moves for the global trade economy.

US manufacturing drives more innovation than any other sector. Accounting for almost 10% of the US workforce, manufacturing creates millions of new jobs a year, many of which are open to workers without college degrees or other higher education. Responsible for contributing trillions of dollars into the US economy every year, the sustainability and craftsmanship of American manufactured goods is changing the way we view world trade.
