Ten largest investors in the US


10/21/2016


No country in the world attract as much foreign investment as the United States do, according to a recent study by Organization For International Investment.



Overall, volume of investments received from abroad reached $ 3.1 trillion in 2015. This is 37% more than in 2010. Much of this growth is attributable to investments coming from the UK.

Many analysts are noting increase in layoffs, yet foreign investment are stimulating creation of new jobs. This, in turn, has a beneficial effect on employment in the US, and on the economy as a whole.

Speaking of sectors, the mining sector was the leader in terms of foreign investment inflow. In 2013, volume of foreign direct investment in the sector amounted to $ 8 billion, and jumped to $ 25 billion in 2014. Industrial production has been the main sector for foreign direct investment. Analysts noted an increase from $ 74 billion to $ 125 billion during the same period.

Last year, foreign companies have invested $ 353 billion in the US. This is a record high, twice more than in 2014. Nevertheless, analysts are recognizing growth of competition, which leads to decrease in the US share of total foreign investment in the world. It has declined from 37% in 2000 to 22% in 2015. 

Currently, the United States still remain the most popular destination for foreign direct investment, yet newly opened opportunities in China are gradually reducing volume of US investments.
