Sarasota, FL, August 25th, 2022 — In 2021 the private and federal push for domestic supply of essential goods propelled reshoring and foreign direct investment (FDI) job announcements to a record high. Projections from Reshoring Initiative 1H 2022 data show reshoring and FDI continuing these gains. The current 2022 projection of jobs announced is around 350,000 - another record, up from 260,000 in 2021. If the projection is achieved, 2022 will bring the total jobs announced since 2010 to over 1.6 million.
Supply chain gaps and the need for greater self-sufficiency continue as major factors driving reshoring. The possibility of a Taiwan-China conflict and the threat of China decoupling are focusing those concerns. Destabilizing geo-political and climate forces have brought to light our vulnerabilities and the need to address them. Subsequently, great opportunities have arisen for a meaningful rebound of U.S. manufacturing. If the current trajectory continues, it will reduce the trade and budget deficits, add jobs, and make the U.S. safer, more self-reliant and resilient.Job Announcements per Year, Reshoring + FDI, 2010 thru 2022-projected

The report includes 2021 data and projections for 2022 full year. The report provides data and analysis in categories ranging from the number of manufacturing jobs gained, to a breakdown of data by industry, country and state. “We publish this data semiannually to show companies that their peers are successfully reshoring and that they should reevaluate their sourcing and siting decisions,” said Harry Moser, founder and president of the Reshoring Initiative. “With 5 million manufacturing jobs still offshore, as measured by our $1.1 trillion/year goods trade deficit, there is potential for much more growth. We also call on the administration and Congress to enact policy changes to make the United States competitive again.” About the Reshoring Initiative A 55-year manufacturing industry veteran and retired President of GF Machining Solutions, Harry Moser founded the Reshoring Initiative to move lost jobs back to the U.S. For his efforts with the Reshoring Initiative, he was named to the Industry Week and Association for Manufacturing Excellence (AME) Halls of Fame.
