Median household income is now at $44,800 based on information from the Bradenton Area Economic Development Corporation and US Bureau of Economic Analysis. 

County Economy

Manatee County has a diversified economic base with the three largest industry sectors being services, retail and manufacturing. The county also has a strong tourism and agricultural base. These bases, with the exception of agriculture, have recently been tested, as the county continues to experience the impact of the global economic downturn. Some of the larger industrial firms include an international family entertainment production facility, a citrus juice producer, aerospace electronics, telephone instruments, packaging machinery, boat manufacturers, aluminum and plastic production facilities, and a contact lens manufacturer. According to the latest information, the four largest employers in the public sector are Manatee County School Board, Manatee County Government, Manatee County Sheriff’s Department and City of Bradenton. Major private sector employers include Tropicana Products, Inc., Beall’s, Inc., Manatee Memorial Hospital, Lakewood Ranch Medical Center and Blake Medical Center. The area is served by an international airport (SRQ) in nearby Sarasota, florida and is connected to St. Petersburg, Florida by the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, a 5.5 milecross bay bridge that rises 250 feet at its highest point.

Port Manatee is located in the northwestern corner of Manatee County. It fronts Tampa Bay and borders the Manatee-Hillsborough county line. An access channel from the Port connects with the federal channel in Tampa Bay only ten miles from the Gulf of Mexico. Port Manatee is the fourth largest of Florida’s 14 deep water seaports. As the major shipping gateway to our community, the Port Authority manages the importing and exporting of many agriculture and industrial products. The Port is a leading venue for shipments of citrus juices and beverages and operates in foreign trade zone #169.
