In comparison to the same period in 2019, these sectors, among the top 10, have increased their gross output: chemical products; motor vehicles, bodies and trailers, and parts; and computer and electronics products.
The other subsectors by quarter 3, 2020 gross output are:
Printing and related support activities, with a gross output of $87.8 billion.
Furniture and related products, with a gross output of $81.0 billion.
Textile mills and textile product mills, with a gross output of $45.5 billion.
Apparel and leather and allied products, with a gross output of $19.8 billion.
Generals Insights on the Effects of COVID-19 on the U.S. Manufacturing Industry
Some of the manufacturing sub-industries that have experienced heavy downturns include: "light vehicle production which was down nearly 99% in April and remained down nearly 38.6% during the first half of 2020" as compared to the same period in 2019.
In this preliminary hour of research, we found information from the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis that provides ample details on the quarterly performance of the U.S. manufacturing industry and its sub-sectors. From this data, we primarily presented the list of the current top 10 manufacturing sectors by gross output as reported in quarter 3, 2020. We also gave the gross output of these sectors in the same period in 2019, to show the change in their output during the COVID-19 period.
We also provided the other sectors in the industry that fell below the top 10.
