Sheet Metal Workers

The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment for sheet metal workers will grow faster than the average for all careers through 2022. Employment growth will be related to several factors. Many new residential, commercial, and industrial buildings will be constructed, requiring the skills of sheet metal workers, and many older buildings will need to have new energy-efficient heating, cooling, and ventilating systems installed to replace outdated systems. Existing equipment will need routine maintenance and repair. Decorative sheet metal products are becoming more popular for some uses, a trend that is expected to provide an increasing amount of employment for sheet metal workers. Employment for sheet metal workers in manufacturing will also grow faster than average through 2022 as some work that was previously outsourced to other countries returns to the United States.
