Producing products ranging from tractors to livestock supplies, this industry is critical to both domestic and international trade.

This industry commands a sizable portion of the national economy. Last year there was $109 billion in sales across 1,574 companies. While sales have remained flat compared to the previous year, this is actually better than some predictions. Slated to be hurt by tariffs with China, the farm machinery sector has held its own and even started a slight recovery.

This is possibly due to a ceasefire in the trade war and the switching of certain tariffs to other products. The relatively large percentage of international distribution, 40%, is another reason that foreign trade is so impactful in this market sector.
