Leadership: Annual Report

Manufacturing supports more than 17 million jobs, contributes $2.09 trillion annually to the U.S. economy, has the largest economic impact of any major sector and accounts for more than three-quarters of all private-sector research and development. Many policymakers and citizens do not understand the depth and breadth of this manufacturing success story, and the NAM aggressively campaigned in 2014 to help them realize our impact—and support our growth.
