The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment for locksmiths will grow by 7 percent through 2022, or more slowly than the average for all careers. Population growth and an expanding public awareness of the need for preventive measures against home, business, and auto burglary continue to create needs for security devices and their maintenance. Also, many individuals and firms are replacing older lock and alarm systems with the latest developments in computerized equipment. Consequently, opportunities will be best for those workers who are able to install and service electronic security systems.
