Quality Control Technicians

Outlook

The employment outlook for quality control technicians depends, to some degree, on general economic conditions. Through 2029, the U.S. Department of Labor projects a 1 percent growth in employment for the field of industrial engineering technicians, which includes quality control technicians. One immediate factor contributing to this slow growth is the coronavirus pandemic, which has disrupted all industries in the U.S. and throughout the world. In addition, fewer technicians are needed due to improvements in technology, which has increased productivity, and a greater reliance on manufacturing workers to constantly monitor the quality of their own work. However, the role of the quality control technician is vital to production and cannot be eliminated. Thus, there will still be new technician jobs to replace people retiring from or otherwise leaving this field.
