Electroplating Workers

Outlook

The number of jobs in the electroplating industry is expected to decline through 2024, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Although there is expected to be a greater number of electroplated items produced, a growing trend to mechanize the processes related to electroplating will reduce the number of workers needed. For this reason, employment levels in this field will not grow at rates that match the growth in output of electroplated products. The demand for plastic products has increased and plastics have replaced metals in many consumer goods in recent years. This trend is likely to continue. There is also increasing competition from foreign manufacturers in the metals and plastics industries.
