Alabama exports soar to record total in 2023, topping $27 billion

MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Governor Kay Ivey announced today that Alabama companies exported goods and services worth over $27.4 billion in 2023, setting a new annual record for the second consecutive year and underscoring the resilience of the state’s economy.

The value of last year’s exports rose 6% from the previous year’s total of $25.5 billion, according to data from the Alabama Department of Commerce. Compared to 2020, when international trade was disrupted by the pandemic, the value of Alabama’s exports has jumped almost 43%.

Last year’s record export activity was driven by rising overseas shipments of Alabama-made vehicles, aerospace parts, minerals and metals, Commerce data indicate.

“Exporting acts as a fundamental economic pillar that supports growth in Alabama, sparking both new investment and job creation here at home,” Governor Ivey said.
