Tobacco Products Industry Workers

Outlook

The U.S. Department of Labor predicts slower than average employment growth for food and tobacco processing workers through 2024. Employment in the tobacco industry has decreased in recent decades, mainly the result of increased automation in manufacturing processes. Manufacturers have also cut back operations due to declining domestic sales and the increasing number of health-related lawsuits. However, while Americans are generally using less tobacco, exports of American-made tobacco products are increasing, especially to the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. Most future demand for workers in this industry will probably be because of a need to replace workers who have moved to other jobs or left the workforce entirely.
