Employment in this field is expected to increase more slowly than the average for all occupations through 2024, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Despite this prediction, opportunities are expected to be good because of growth in residential and nonresidential construction and the need to replace workers who leave the field. Glass will continue to be popular for its good looks and its practical advantages, and further improvements in glass and glass products are making glass more desirable as a construction material. A growing focus on energy management and the increasing trend towards the installation of safety glass in many government and commercial buildings—especially in the South—will also fuel demand for qualified glaziers.
