Glass Manufacturing Workers
Glass is so common in our lives that as long as we continue to use it in its myriad forms, workers in glass manufacturing will be needed. It is difficult to predict with any accuracy specific future job growth; however, in most areas employment is projected to experience little to no change or to decline through 2018. Much of the environment in the glass industry depends on other industries that use glass, like automobiles, spacecraft, nuclear energy, electronics, and solar energy. There are two markets for which new developments may be more important than others and thus require new workers: switchable glass (in which the ability of the glass to be seen through is changed by electronic and other means) and glass used in energy conservation.
