Rising Alabama exports put 2022 on course for record year

Alabama exports are bouncing back from global trade frictions and disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, which combined to interrupt years of momentum that lifted overseas shipments of Alabama-made goods.

While full-year results are not yet available for 2022, trade data show that Alabama exports approached $23.4 billion in value through November — a figure that already eclipses the annual record of $21.7 billion, set in 2017.

That’s good news for Alabama businesses that export their products to an international customer base because it suggests the strong recovery made during 2021 is accelerating.

“Alabama is full of next-level innovation taking place in key industries, and we’re ready to bring what’s happening inside our factories and laboratories, and within our entrepreneurial ecosystem to the world,” said Greg Canfield, Secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce.
