Ohio Products in Demand ~ Exports Grow for the 11th Consecutive Year

In 2008, Ohio exports grew to more than $45 billion, a 7 percent increase from the previous year. Ohio is the seventh-largest exporting state in the nation and is the only state to increase exports every year since 1998.

Well over 200 countries receive exports from Ohio. The state's largest export markets include Canada, Mexico, Japan, China, Brazil and European Union countries. The state's top product exports include machinery, vehicles, plastics and optics.

Ohio's continuous export-success is an indicator of the size and strength of the state's manufacturing economy, which is bolstered by a competitive business environment, easy access and multiple modes of transportation, and a skilled workforce . To help Ohio companies explore global trade opportunities and generate continued success in exporting, the Ohio Department of Development's Global Markets Division manages a network of international offices in Asia, Australia, the Eastern Mediterranean, Europe, India, North and South America, and Southern Africa.
