Nearly one-quarter (24.5 percent) of all manufacturing workers in Michigan depend on exports for their jobs. (2006 data are the latest available.) Note: Export-related employment data shown do not include manufacturing and non-manufacturing jobs involved in the export of non-manufactured goods, such as farm products, minerals, and services sold to foreign buyers. Indirect exports exclude imported items. The complete 2006 export-related employment series is available on our Export Related Jobs pages. Additional information on methodology used in the export-related employment series can be found in the U.S. Census Bureau's publication Exports from Manufacturing Establishments: 2006.

Major sources of Michigan's foreign investment in 2007 included Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom, Canada, and France. Nearly two-fifths of these jobs (37 percent, or 55,900 workers) were in the manufacturing sector in 2007. Nearly one of every eleven manufacturing workers (8.9 percent) were employed by foreign-controlled companies in 2007. Foreign investment in Michigan was responsible for 4.1 percent of the state's total private-industry employment in 2007. Note: All figures exclude employment in banks affiliated with foreign companies. Source: U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Economic Analysis. Back to top of Michigan report Michigan Depends on World Markets Michigan's export shipments of merchandise in 2008 totaled $45.1 billion, placing Michigan eighth among the states in this category. From 2004 to 2008, merchandise exports from Michigan increased $9.2 billion, the 11th largest dollar growth in exports among the 50 states. The state's largest foreign market, by far, in 2008 was Canada, which received exports of $24.1 billion, or 53 percent of the Michigan total. Canada was followed by Mexico ($6.4 billion), Germany ($1.6 billion), Japan ($1.4 billion), and China ($1.3 billion). Michigan's leading export category, by far, is transportation equipment, which alone accounted for 47 percent, or $21.1 billion, of Michigan's exports in 2008. Other top export categories were machinery manufactures ($4.2 billion in 2008), chemical manufactures ($4.0 billion), and primary metal manufactures ($2.4 billion). Source: Revised Origin of Movement State Export Series, Bureau of the Census, Foreign Trade Division. Caution: The Origin of Movement series allocates exports to states based on transportation origin, i.e., the state from which goods began their journey to the port (or other point) of exit from the United States. The transportation origin of exports is not always the same as the location where the goods were produced. Consequently, conclusions about "export production" in a state should not be made solely on the basis of the Origin of Movement state export figures.
