Painters and Paperhangers

Outlook

Employment of painters is expected to grow as fast as the average for all occupations through 2024, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Job opportunities for industrial painters will be excellent because of a shortage of qualified workers. The DOL reports that "growing demand for industrial painting will be driven by the need to prevent the corrosion and deterioration of many industrial structures by painting or coating them." Although jobs for industrial painters are found throughout the United States, demand will likely be strongest in the Gulf Coast region.
