Fluid Power Technicians

The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that the employment of heavy vehicle and mobile equipment service technicians will grow about as fast as the average for all careers through 2024. Because fluid power is used in so many different industries, the need for technicians is growing. Currently, in fact, demand exceeds the supply of trained workers. In the last decade, electrohydraulic and electropneumatic technologies opened up new markets, such as active suspensions on automobiles, and reestablished older markets, such as robotics. The fluid power industry is expected to continue growing and the outlook for technicians should remain strong in the coming years.
