Plastics Engineers and Technicians

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) predicts that employment for materials engineers who work in plastics product manufacturing will decline through 2022. Most openings will result from the need to replace workers who retire or leave the field for other reasons. Some openings will come as a result of experienced engineers who advance to sales, management, or other related occupations within the plastics industry. Those with the most advanced skills and experience, as always, will enjoy the best future career outlook.
