Critical Manufacturing Sector Landscape

The Critical Manufacturing Sector comprises processes and products that are crucial to the economic prosperity and continuity of the United States. Among myriad roles and responsibilities, manufacturers in the sector process raw materials and primary metals; produce engines, turbines, and power transmission equipment; produce electrical equipment and components; and manufacture cars, trucks, commercial ships, aircraft, rail cars, and their supporting components. Products made by these industries are essential to many other critical infrastructure sectors; a failure or disruption in the Critical Manufacturing Sector could result in cascading disruptions to other sectors in multiple regions.
