About The Houston, Texas, Economy
The Houston-area economy's gross domestic product (GDP) was as high as $489 billion as recently as 2012. This is the fourth largest GDP of any metropolitan area in the United States, and there are only 26 countries in the world other than the United States with a larger GDP.
Houston's economy is driven largely by the energy industry, oil and natural gas production in particular. Other prominent industries in Houston and surrounding suburbs include biomedical research and aeronautics.
Our city's shipping channel is a key to our status as the world's 10th-largest port, and a major factor in being ranked as the top U.S. market for exports by the U.S. Department of Commerce's International Trade Administration.
Manufacturing is another key segment of the Houston economy, as the city is a leading center for the manufacture of oilfield equipment, supplying the energy sector with critical components.
