Alabama exports soared to new record in 2022, topping $25.5 billion

MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Governor Kay Ivey announced today that Alabama exports surged to over $25.5 billion in 2022, setting a new annual record and providing another indicator that the state’s economy is performing strongly.

Last year’s surging export activity was driven by rising overseas shipments of Alabama-made vehicles, aerospace parts, chemicals, minerals, metals and paper products, according to data from the Alabama Department of Commerce.

The value of Alabama exports in 2022 jumped 22% compared to the prior year, which also saw a substantial increase. Alabama exports have soared almost 47% since 2020, when global trade tensions and the COVID-19 pandemic dragged down shipments.
