The total area of Faisalabad District covers 58.56km2 (22.61sqmi) while the area controlled by the Faisalabad Development Authority (FDA) is 1,280km2 (490sqmi).

It has been referred to as the "Manchester of Pakistan" because it contributes over 20% toward Pakitan's annual GDP. Faisalabad's average annual GDP is $20.55 billion (USD), of which 21% comes from agriculture.
