Manufacturing

NAICS Sectors 31-33

In 2015, the Manufacturing sector increased its employment by 204 workers (0.5 percent) for an average of 42,592 workers. With a loss of four establishments, the number of establishments decreased to a total of 1,114 statewide. This sector is comprised of both durable and non-durable goods manufacturing. Establishments included in durable goods manufacturing are engaged in manufacturing goods with a normal life expectancy of three or more years. These items typically consist of higher dollar products, such as machinery, furniture, building materials and electronic equipment. Non-durable goods typically consist of food and beverage products, clothing and paper products.

In 2015, 12 of the 21 manufacturing subsectors showed gains in the number of workers, indicating a recovery from the recession. The following subsectors showed worker gains:

  • Food Manufacturing (NAICS 311): 327 workers (3.9 percent)
  • Transportation Equipment Manufacturing (NAICS 336): 211 workers (7.1 percent)
  • Machinery Manufacturing (NAICS 333): 146 workers (2.1 percent)
  • Nonmetallic Mineral Product Manufacturing (NAICS 327): 95 workers (6.2 percent)
  • Furniture and Related Product Manufacturing (NAICS 337): 74 workers (3.1 percent)
  • Miscellaneous Manufacturing (NAICS 339): 70 workers (1.5 percent)
  • Primary Metal Manufacturing (NAICS 331): 53 workers (7.3 percent)
  • Wood Product Manufacturing (NAICS 321): 50 workers (2.4 percent)
  • Chemical Manufacturing (NAICS 325): 29 workers (2.7 percent)
  • Electrical Equipment, Appliance and Component Manufacturing (NAICS 335): 22 workers (5.1 percent)
  • Textile Product Mills (NAICS 314): 11 workers (2.8 percent)
  • Beverage and Tobacco Product Manufacturing (NAICS 312): four workers (2.2 percent)

Despite overall gain in workers for this sector, eight of the 21 manufacturing subsectors experienced decreased worker levels. Worker losses occurred within these subsectors:

  • Fabricated Metal Product Manufacturing (NAICS 332): 346 workers (7.9 percent)
  • Computer and Electronic Product Manufacturing (NAICS 334): 316 workers (14.1 percent)
  • Plastics and Rubber Products Manufacturing (NAICS 326): 148 workers (9.0 percent)
  • Printing and Related Support Activities (NAICS 323): 43 workers (3.1 percent)
  • Apparel Manufacturing (NAICS 315): 27 workers (39.7 percent)
  • Paper Manufacturing (NAICS 322): five workers (0.6 percent)
  • Leather and Allied Product Manufacturing (NAICS 316): one worker (9.1 percent)
  • Petroleum and Coal Products Manufacturing (NAICS 324): one worker (25.0 percent)

Textile Mills (NAICS 313) remained unchanged from 2014 with five workers.

The 2015 average annual pay for the manufacturing sector was $45,434, an increase of 2.1 percent compared to the 2014 level of $44,505. Annual pay increased in 18 of its 21 sectors:

  • Petroleum and Coal Products Manufacturing (NAICS 324): $18,606 (23.9 percent)
  • Primary Metal Manufacturing (NAICS 331): $3,054 (6.6 percent)
  • Leather and Allied Product Manufacturing (NAICS 316): $2,725 (21.4 percent)
  • Textile Mills (NAICS 313): $2,687 (10.5 percent)
  • Transportation Equipment Manufacturing (NAICS 336): $2,338 (5.2 percent)
  • Mineral Product Manufacturing (NAICS 327): $2,283 (4.3 percent)
  • Miscellaneous Manufacturing (NAICS 339): $1,872 (3.8 percent)
  • Food Manufacturing (NAICS 311): $1,772 (4.2 percent)
  • Furniture and Related Product Manufacturing (NAICS 337): $1,559 (4.4 percent)
  • Textile Product Mills (NAICS 314): $1,256 (3.5 percent)
  • Wood Product Manufacturing (NAICS 321): $1,118 (2.7 percent)
  • Plastics and Rubber Products Manufacturing (NAICS 326): $997 (2.4 percent)
  • Fabricated Metal Product Manufacturing (NAICS 332): $825 (1.9 percent)
  • Apparel Manufacturing (NAICS 315): $482 (1.6 percent)
  • Paper Manufacturing (NAICS 322): $373 (0.8 percent)
  • Chemical Manufacturing (NAICS 325): $296 (0.5 percent)
  • Beverage and Tobacco Product Manufacturing (NAICS 312): $258 (1.0 percent)
  • Printing and Related Support Activities (NAICS 323): $186 (0.5 percent)

Although a majority of the manufacturing subsectors had increases in annual pay, three subsectors had significant decreases in annual pay:

  • Computer and Electronic Product Manufacturing (NAICS 334) lost 9.1 percent or $3,947
  • Machinery Manufacturing (NAICS 333) lost $817 or 1.7 percent
  • Electrical Equipment, Appliance and Component Manufacturing (NAICS 335) decreased $224 or 0.6 percent

Overall, the manufacturing sector increased its number of workers from 2014 to 2015 and continued to see increases in the average annual pay. The recession in late 2008 impacted the manufacturing sector in 2009 and 2010, but data shows that since 2010 manufacturing has been recovering.
