Apr 03, 2023

Kansas exports reached an all-time high of $13.97 billion in 2022. Compared with last year’s data, exports surged by $1.42 billion, representing an 11.36 percent growth. The previous highs for state exports occurred in 2021 and 2008, and both topped out at $12.5 billion. The pent-up demand due to the ongoing global pandemic, the higher prices for products, and trading partners’ fiscal and monetary policy actions are likely to be the significant contributing factors behind the growth.
