Over the past few centuries, the USA has developed to the level of a world economic leader. The United States is the most developed country with the world’s largest, most technologically advanced, and most diverse economy in the world. Some scientists believe that the world’s political map has several poles of economic development. The largest of them is American [5]. The USA has a political and economic influence on most countries of the world. But the States themselves, their economy, and development largely depend on other states, on foreign trade with these states. Therefore, the task of this study is a more detailed study of the topic of the needs of the United States in raw materials because all production, technological development, export, and import of states directly depend on their supply of raw materials. The United States is abundantly endowed with natural renewable and non-renewable resources. The country has large areas of agricultural land, a diverse climate, a long coastline, and sufficient water resources. In the ranking of the countries of the world in terms of the value of natural resources, the USA occupies the 7th position – the total value of natural resources is estimated at $45 trillion, of which 89 % is natural coal and wood.
