The industry structure is dominated by the aviation, electromechanical, chemical and food industries. The glass, building materials, wood and light industries also play an important role. They use a variety of raw materials in the region: natural gas, crude oil, limestone, gypsum and natural aggregates. The rich resources of healing waters are used in the health resorts.
There are two special economic zones in the voivodeship: Tarnobrzeg Special Economic Zone "Euro-Park Wisłosan" and Special Economic Zone "Euro-Park" Mielec.
