How much do Americans spend on fireworks for the 4th of July, as of 2016?
Answer: $800 million
The American Pyrotechnic Association estimated that Americans would spend more than $800 million on fireworks for their 4th of July celebrations in 2016. By comparison, Americans spent only $284 million for this holiday celebration fireworks in 1998. As more states repeal restrictions on the sale of fireworks, revenues have increased accordingly. Each state sets its own limits on the composition of the fireworks it allows, with 500-gram pyrotechnic composition being the maximum allowed for consumer fireworks by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
