The Arizona Hispanic Chamber of Commerce "2019 Datos: The State of Arizona’s Hispanic Market" reported Hispanic buying power in Arizona will reach $57 billion in 2022.

The number of Hispanic-owned businesses increased by 40.2% from 2012 to 2018, while all U.S. businesses grew by 18.8% in comparison.
