| Baton Rouge's biggest industry is petrochemical production. ExxonMobil has the second-largest oil refinery in the country here; it is among the world's 10 largest refineries. Baton Rouge also has rail, highway, pipeline, and deep water access; Baton Rouge is the farthest inland port on the Mississippi River that can accommodate ocean-going tankers and cargo carriers. As such, those ships transfer their cargo (grain, crude, cars, containers) at Baton Rouge onto rails and pipelines (to travel east-west) or barges (to travel north).

Dow Chemical Company has a large plant in Iberville Parish near Plaquemine. NanYa Technology Corporation has a large facility in North Baton Rouge that makes PVC and CPVC pipes. Shaw Construction, Turner, and Harmony all started with performing construction work at these plants.
As well as being the state capital and parish seat, the city is also the home of Louisiana State University. The largest employer in Baton Rouge is government. The research hospitals Our Lady of the Lake and Earl K. Long, helped by an emerging medical corridor at Essen Lane/Summa Avenue/Bluebonnet Boulevard, are positioning Baton Rouge to eventually support a medical district similar to the Texas Medical Center.
