Manufacturing's Multiplier Effect is Stronger than Other Sectors'

Manufacturing is complex and its production processes increase the demand for raw materials, energy, construction, and services from a broad array of supplying industries.  Additionally, many functions previously completed within manufacturing companies—from back-office operations and accounting to some types of logistics—are now contracted to other service providers and hence not counted as part of the manufacturing sector.
