Idaho's Export Industry

Economic Snapshot of Idaho's export industry

Robert Spendlove Oct 16, 2015

Idaho’s international exports have been impacted by worldwide trends of economic uncertainty and a strong US dollar leading to weaker demand for US exports. Idaho's net exports for 2014 totaled $5.136 billion. While total exports in Idaho increased 76% in the past decade, they are down from the historic high of $6.113 billion in 2012. This decline is primarily due to reductions in exports from the computer and electronics industry. However, exports from Idaho’s agriculture related industries continue to experience consistent growth.
