Job opportunities for chemists are expected to grow by 4 percent from 2018 to 2028, as fast as the average for all careers, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). There will continue to be good opportunities for chemists who can help the chemical manufacturing industry develop technologies and processes that reduce pollution and improve energy efficiency, monitor pollution levels at manufacturing facilities, and ensure compliance with environmental regulations. Chemists will also be needed to improve battery technologies, develop nanotechnology for medicinal uses, find ways to remanufacture recycled materials (especially plastics), and develop alternative energy sources.
