Manufacturing & Distribution USA covers three industrial sectors, in detail: (1) Manufacturing, (2) Wholesale Trade and (3) Retail Trade. Together these sectors represented 24 percent of the U.S. economy in terms of GDP and 24 percent of nonfarm employment in 2015. They have also been recovering more quickly from the last recession than the rest of the economy. Between 2009—the trough year of the most recent recession—and 2015, the MDUSA industries were up 27 percent while all other sectors were up 24 percent. This is a change worth watching.
Again in this edition, as in earlier editions, each industry profile includes a list of up to 75 companies active in that industry and offering users sales, employment and contact information for each company listed.

  • First edition to be organized around the 2012 NAICS structure.
  • Data from the 2012 Economic Census finally became available at the 6-digit NAICS level in 2016 and it is around these data that the new edition is structured.

  • Includes reconstructed historical records for 120 manufacturing industries.
  • Starting in 2003 and running through 2011 the Census Bureau reported on a group of manufacturing industries in collective form only.
  • During this period the editors of MDUSA were obliged to follow suit.
  • In 2013 the Bureau once again began to report annually on all 6-digit NAICS manufacturing industries but did not retroactively fill in the gaps left by its earlier aggregation.
  • The editors of MDUSA have recreated the historical record for these 120 manufacturing industries in the new edition.
  • This is fully explained in the frontmatter and extrapolations are noted within the body.
