Little or no change in employment is expected for tool and die makers through 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Demand should remain steady for these craftsworkers because they play a key role in the operation of many firms. As firms continue to invest in new equipment and modify production techniques, they will continue to rely heavily on skilled tool and die makers for retooling. This, coupled with the growing demand for products that use machined parts, should help to keep demand constant for qualified precision metalworkers.
