Montana's Manufacturing Industries

The Bureau of Business and Economic Research is a research department within the School of Business Administration at The University of Montana-Missoula. We produce a variety of economic and industry data including annual economic forecasts for the United States as well as Montana, its industries, and counties.

For decades the Bureau has studied the Forest Products Industry of Montana and more recently has been monitoring the larger manufacturing sector.

With our partners at the Montana Manufacturing Extension Center we have prepared an overview of the state of Manufacturing in Montana in 2015.

The State of Montana Manufacturing 2015

The State of Montana Manufacturing 2016

Annually we look at the Outlook for both the Forest Products Industry and Manufacturing and do a survey of Montana manufacturer's. These reports are available below.
