Is there any list out there that displays every plane by country source of its components?

For ex:

Plane A

USA: x%
China: x%
France: x %

Not really, because it depends (a lot) on how you define "component". For example, major structural components of an aircraft might come from, say, Korea using aluminum stock from Russia, Canada, or the US...what's the country of origin?

Your avionics box has a case from Taiwan, chips from China, assembled in Puerto Rico, running software coded in the US...what's the country of origin?

Airbus aircraft can have up to 40% American workshare if engines are American. Many Airbus systems are sourced from USA, also a political move to reduce exposure to EUROUSD exchange ratio.

Kind of like my "Japanese" cars that were assembled in Ohio and the UK! And came with Delco batteries IIRC

I used to work in an engine assembly plant - was fascinating to see where all the parts came from.
In one engine some of the components would break out like this;

-Pistons, Brazil/China
-Carburetor, Mexico/Taiwan
-Fuel filter/oil filter, India
-Wiring harness, China/USA
-Engine block/crankshaft, USA
-Plastic moldings, USA

But the torque wrenches used to check the tools on the line were made in England  

In aerospace though, even 'foreign made aircraft' rely heavily on a US dominated manufacturing industry.
Sitting at work right now, and the manufacturing plant behind my office is currently exporting to Europe, Japan, China, Russia, India, Taiwan... everywhere.
