Optics Technicians

The field of optics technology and manufacturing should have slower than average growth during the next decade. Employment of photonics technicians is expected to increase slowly in manufacturing as firms invest in automated machinery. Most job openings will arise from the need to replace technicians who transfer to other occupations or leave the labor force. Only a small number of job openings will be created each year because the occupation is relatively small.
