    Key Market Trends

    Growing Population in the State

    Population growth is a significant factor that affects freight growth in Texas because residents consume commodities that must be transported throughout the state and beyond. Texas is the second most populated state in the nation, with about 28 million people in 2016 and an additional 11 million by 2045. This equates to an average of 1,000 people moving to Texas daily. Texas’ population is also expected to concentrate in urban areas and existing population centres.

    Due to the increasing population in the urban region of the state, the freight movement within the state by truck has grown significantly. Additionally, the growing population has also contributed to the freight and logistics sector through high employment in Texas. In 2016, there were an estimated 10 million employees in the state of Texas. While nearly half of the population was located in the state’s five largest counties, more than half its employment was located in the same five.

    Texas Ports Dominating International Freight

    Texas ports play a critical role in the state’s transportation system and are a key part of the state’s economy. Texas Gulf Coast ports handled more than 563 million tons of foreign and domestic cargo in 2015 which was approximately 22% of all US port tonnage. Texas ports generate USD 368.7 billion in economic activity in the state and USD 6.9 billion in state and local taxes per year. Seven Texas ports rank in the top 50 of all U.S. ports in terms of annual tonnage, including Houston (2nd), Beaumont (5th), Corpus Christi (6th) and Texas City (15th). Texas Ports create over 1.5 million jobs in some way related to the cargo moving through marine terminals generating $92 billion in personal income. Texas is the largest exporting state in the Nation, thanks in large part to the state’s ports that facilitate the movement of U.S. products to the world marketplace.
