The U.S. Department of Labor’s ONET OnLine career site predicts little or no change in the employment of nanotechnology engineering technicians through 2024. Employment should benefit as more nanotechnologies are developed for use in consumer goods. From 2005 to 2013, the number of nanotechnology-based consumer products (NBCPs) grew by 24 percent. As of May 2016, the NBCP inventory contained 1,827 products or product lines. Nanotechnicians can also expect continued employment demand because such a large number and variety of industries now incorporate nanotechnology into their tools, technologies, and products. Even if employment declines in one industry (automotives, for example), nanotechnicians can find jobs in other, more vibrant industries (such as pharmaceuticals or aerospace).
