Women have long been integral to the landscape of American manufacturing, contributing significantly to its diversity and resilience. In recent years, their role has grown substantially, marked by a steady rise in women-owned manufacturing enterprises across the United States over the year. According MNI, compiler and publisher of industrial data across the U.S, there are currently 6,431 women-owned manufacturers in the country, a testament to the entrepreneurial spirit and innovation that women bring to the industry.

What distinguishes these women-owned manufacturers is their diverse composition. Notably, 20% of these enterprises are minority-owned, surpassing the demographic makeup of U.S. manufacturing as a whole. 

The impact of women-owned manufacturers also extends beyond domestic borders, with a significant proportion engaging in international trade. A third of these enterprises export their products, showcasing their ability to compete in the global marketplace and contribute to the country's economic growth.

Importantly, women-owned manufacturers also demonstrate resilience and adaptability in their supply chain management. Approximately 16% import raw materials, highlighting their strategic sourcing practices and ability to leverage global resources to meet production demands effectively.

Women-owned manufacturers continue to thrive across various regions of the United States. Geographically, a third of these enterprises are located in the Midwest, reflecting the region's strong manufacturing tradition and supportive business environment. The South follows closely, hosting 29% of women-owned manufacturers, while the Pacific/West region accounts for 20%, and the East Coast comprises 19%.
