State of Manufacturing®

The State of Manufacturing® is an annual survey of Minnesota’s manufacturing industry, highlighting the trends, conditions, and outlook of executives from around the state.

State of Manufacturing® 2023

The State of Manufacturing® is the annual survey of Minnesota manufacturing executives that reveals the latest trends in key business areas including growth, workforce, supply chain, economic confidence, and more. Each year, over 535 manufacturing executives are surveyed, representing a broad mix of manufacturers by region, employee count and annual revenue.

Our pollster, Meeting Street Insights, is currently in the field speaking to manufacturers and collecting data.
