Outlook

Demand will be strong for elevator installers and repairers, however this is a small occupation and few new jobs will be created. Demand will increase as existing equipment needs repair and new buildings need elevators. The aging population contributes to growth as people need elevators and lifts to access their homes.

Elevator installers and repairers generally are not affected by the state of the economy. This is because elevators must always be kept in good working condition.

Some job openings will occur as current workers leave this occupation. Job prospects are good for entry-level workers who have formal training or a post-secondary degree in electronics.
