Some people will think of pharmaceutical and medicine manufacturing because this state’s largest industry is chemical product manufacturing. This happened over the last several years as Indiana now lays claim to some of the biggest drug manufacturing companies in the United States, such as Eli Lilly, which is known as the largest manufacturer – or at least one of the few. 

The economic output the state gives the GDP on average on an annual basis is about 7%. Indiana brings in $21.3 billion and holds a workforce of nearly 31,000 people. On top of all this, the state’s largest industry continues to grow. And with the increase in pharmaceuticals, it doesn’t look like it will hit a decline any time soon.
