Electroplating Workers


The number of jobs in the electroplating industry is expected to decline by 11 percent from 2018 to 2028, 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 automate 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.
