From auto parts to petroleum to diamonds -- every state has its own big area of export expertise. In the golden state, the exporting industry supports more than 4.9 million Californians' careers, primarily in airplane parts. Another highly-populated state whose exporting industry supports millions of people, 2.7 million to be exact, is New York -- and that’s primarily for diamonds.

From Florida to Arizona to Connecticut -- among all 50 states, airplane parts seems to be the leading export. On a smaller scale, Wyoming’s number one export is soda ash, and 71,000 people are supported by trade.
