While for many years, the US under-invested in manufacturing in this area, the new Administration has finally noted its strategic (and national security) importance.

Artificial spider silk for super-strength materials
A multidisciplinary team has been awarded a grant to replicate spider silk, which has high strength and potential use in new products.Lead researcher Dr Sean Blamires from University of NSW’s Evolution & Ecology Research Centre said spider silk was stronger than steel or kevlar. “Tapping into its secrets could herald a revolution in manufacturing,” he said, with several high-performance materials possible, from ultra-tough ropes to prosthetics.“In this age of massive amounts of plastics pollution, the creation of spider silk materials using cutting edge genetic and spinning technologies would be of great interest to industry."https://www.aumanufacturing.com.au/secrets-in-spider-spider-silk-could-herald-a-revolution-in-manuf
