Electronics Manufacturing

Industry Outlook

Approximately 1.04 million Americans were employed in the computer electronic equipment manufacturing industry in 2018, as reported by the Department of Labor (DOL). This reflects an overall decline of employment in this industry. As of 2008, there were more than 1.2 million employees in the industry. The DOL projects that the manufacturing sector as a whole will experience employment declines of 0.5 percent through 2028. Contributing factors to the decline include the continuing automation of manufacturing processes and the trend for U.S. electronics companies to move their production and assembly operations to lower-wage countries, such as those in the Pacific Rim.
