Machinery/ Equipment Products

Overview

What is the significance of U.S. imports of machinery and equipment products through Arizona BPOE?

Machinery and equipment manufacturing products comprise one of the largest share of commodities imported from Mexico through Arizona’s border ports of entry, and represent one of the key components of the North American production sharing system. The dynamics of machinery and equipment product movements through Arizona’s border ports of entry reflect the composite effects of both the manufacturing integration between Arizona and Mexico, and between Mexico, Canada, and other U.S. states that use Arizona’s border ports for movement of goods. Among Arizona’s six border ports of entry, Nogales facilitates the largest volume and value of imported machinery and equipment products from Mexico. San Luis is distant second, followed by Douglas.

What is measured?

This indicator shows U.S. imports of machinery and equipment products from Mexico, that are shipped through Arizona’s border ports of entry. Data include all imports of machinery and equipment products that are destined for Arizona, together with those that are traveling to other U.S. states. U.S. imports of machinery and equipment products from Mexico are shown for each Arizona border port of entry. Totals for AZ BPOE reported by the U.S. Census Bureau in this category include Tucson and Phoenix, as they serve to facilitate imports from Mexico by air freight.

How competitive is Arizona?

To gauge Arizona’s relative competitiveness in the U.S.-Mexico border region, data are provided for a selected number of major ports of entry in Texas and California. Values expressed in percent change allow for comparison of trends in the northbound movement of machinery and equipment products at individual ports, as well as for the state as a whole.
