The United States is the third largest exporter of manufactured goods, ranking below the European Union and China but well ahead of fourth-place Japan.  The export market had its most dramatic shift in recent years via the rapid rise of China to pass the United States.  In 2000, U.S. manufacturing exports were more than three times larger than China’s, while in 2011, Chinese exports were 28 percent higher than those of the United States.
