Installation, Maintenance, and Repair

These workers set up, take care of, and fix many types of goods and equipment.

Overall employment in installation, maintenance, and repair occupations is projected to grow 5 percent from 2021 to 2031, about as fast as the average for all occupations; this increase is expected to result in about 304,000 new jobs over the decade. In addition to new jobs from growth, opportunities arise from the need to replace workers who leave their occupations permanently. About 628,200 openings each year, on average, are projected to come from growth and replacement needs.
