Economy of Tennessee

The economy of Tennessee is very diversified, there is no one leading industry, but there are successfully operating financial companies, industry, agriculture, mining, tourism, entertainment and other areas.

Many important transport routes pass through Tennessee, Memphis Airport occupies one of the first places in the world in terms of cargo traffic, so it is no coincidence that the headquarters of one of the largest US logistics companies FedEx is located here.

The state’s industries produce textiles, food, semiconductor products, medical equipment, chemicals, musical instruments, and military products. Recently, the automotive industry has been developing in Tennessee, for example, a Volkswagen plant operates in Chattanooga, and a Nissan plant in Smyrna.

Although the state cannot boast of large mineral reserves, kaolin clay, marble, sandstone, and coal are mined here. Tennessee ranks second among US states in terms of zinc ore mining and processing, and is also one of the few places in the United States of America that produces cadmium and germanium.

In Tennessee, especially in the central and western regions, agriculture is well developed. The plains of Central Tennessee are excellent for animal husbandry, with cattle, pigs, and horses raised here. The region is also famous for its tobacco plantations. The fertile lands of the Mississippi Valley in West Tennessee thrive on soybeans, cotton, and other crops. In recent decades, viticulture and winemaking have been actively developing in the state, especially in the eastern regions, which are not very suitable for other crops.

One of the largest employers in Tennessee is the US government. In the east of the state, in the city of Oak Ridge, enriched uranium and plutonium have been produced since the days of the Manhattan Project (the US nuclear weapons program). Today, the “Y-12 National Security Center” stores stocks of nuclear materials, as well as maintenance of nuclear weapons nodes. The Oak Ridge National Laboratory, a research arm of the US Department of Energy, is also located here. This is a research center in the field of nuclear physics, high-performance computing (one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world operates here), materials science and nanotechnology, nuclear medicine, chemistry, biology and energy.

In addition, several more military facilities are located in Tennessee, including the National Guard Air Force Base in Memphis, the Engineering Research Center at Arnold Air Force Base near Tullahoma, the ammunition factory in Kingsport and others.
