Animal health is among the most innovative industries in the country, and strong demand for U.S. products in foreign markets led to more than $2.5 billion in animal health exports in 2021. This production supports 4,366 direct jobs, which is 18.1% of all animal health manufacturing jobs. While the U.S. manufacturing sector experiences trade deficits, the U.S. animal health manufacturers realize a trade surplus of nearly $800 million.
