Industry Outlook

The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects 4 percent growth of multimedia artists and animators through 2028, which is about as fast as the average for all occupations. Job growth will be fueled by an uptick in demand for visual effects in movies, television, and video games. As consumers call for 3-dimensional content with higher degrees of realism, the industry will need to use the latest technologies and hire more multimedia artists and animators. Although growth is expected, competition for animation jobs will be fierce, with many new graduates applying for jobs. Those with skills such as computer programming or drawing will have an edge when seeking work. Additionally, the use of overseas animators may impact job growth through the mid-2020s.
