According to new data compiled by MNI, publisher of the U.S. industrial data that powers IndustryNet, South Carolina added manufacturing jobs for a seventh straight year.



Gains were led by the plastics and rubber industry, as well as chemicals processing, primary metals and electronics, unlike previous years, in which gains were overwhelmingly led by the transportation equipment sector.



The latest data suggests, however, that the state�s transportation equipment sector is poised for accelerated growth in the coming year, with some major operations expanding hiring in the months ahead.

According to new data released by MNI, Connecticut's manufacturing sector added jobs at its fastest rate in decades. MNI, compiler and publisher of the industrial information that powers IndustryNet, reports Connecticut added 3,153 manufacturing jobs, or 1.5% between June 2017 and June 2018. This marks the state's third straight year of gains, and one that far outstripped increases of the past few years.



Connecticut struggled to add manufacturing jobs after the recession as a strong dollar hit its export market; global competition took hold, and high business costs sent some manufacturers to cheaper locations. The state's manufacturing sector all but flatlined, with industrial employment inching down 4% between June 2010 and June 2015.



The gains of the past three years, however, suggest things are looking up for Connecticut manufacturing. In this past year alone, the state added more manufacturing jobs than at any year since MNI began reporting on its manufacturing climate in 2002.

The state added 21,513 jobs, or 1.8%, according to MNI, publisher of the industrial data that powers IndustryNet.



Overall, Texas manufacturing employment has grown consistently in the post-recession era, with much of the growth led by the a booming oil sector.



The chart below illustrates the ups and downs of Texas manufacturing employment over the past ten years.



The next chart illustrates growth in Texas' oil/gas extraction sector, which generally follows the same growth pattern as the entire state, with a slight dip between 2014 and 2016, when a supply glut drove oil prices down.



But although oil/gas sector employment is a significant factor in the state's post-recession gains, taken alone, the industry makes up a growing, but still fairly small (11%) share of the state's industrial employment.

According to new data collected by MNI, researcher and compiler of the U.S. manufacturing data that powers IndustryNet, manufacturing employment in Michigan continued to grow in the past year, adding more than 11,000 jobs or 1.6%.



However, the proposed import tariffs on steel and aluminum could deliver a one-two punch to the state's manufacturing climate as industries that rely on imported steel and aluminum face higher prices, and some of Michigan's top export sectors, like food products, face possible retaliatory trade measures.



This article will take a closer look at Michigan's manufacturing sector, delving into specific industry, city, and regional factors.

North Carolina gained manufacturing jobs for a seventh year in a row, according to IndustryNet's survey of the state's 9,702 manufacturers.



The two charts below provide additional insight into North Carolina's manufacturing sector. The first is a snapshot of the state's industrial climate, including growing industries and regions. The ten-year growth chart shows exactly how much North Carolina has grown since the recession, but also reveals how low the state's manufacturing employment levels are compared to pre-recession employment.



Taking a closer look at this data reveals job gains during this period were primarily led by the transportation equipment sector, which has steadily outpaced many of North Carolina's traditional sectors in terms of job growth. The second chart compares job growth in the transportation equipment sector to losses in the textiles/apparel sector.



At the start of the recession, the textiles/apparel sector employed nearly double the amount of workers than the transportation equipment sector. Fast forward to 2017 and that gap has narrowed so significantly, it looks as though transportation equipment will soon overtake textiles as the state's third-largest industrial sector by number of jobs.
