Coin and Vending Machine Repairers - Employment & Outlook

The table below provides information about the number of workers in this occupation in various regions. It also provides information about the expected growth rate and future job openings.

Employment

About 14% of coin and vending machine operators are self-employed.

Outlook

Demand for coin and vending machine repairers will show little to no change over the next few years. New vending machines require less maintenance than older machines. Some machines use wireless data transmitters to signal when restocking or repairs are needed. This allows servicers and repairers to visit machines less often and requires fewer workers.

Repairers with experience, or a background in electronics, will have the best job prospects.
