Auto Glass Installers - 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 19% of auto glass installers are self-employed.

Major employers:

  • Auto body and glass repair shops
  • Motor vehicle dealerships

Outlook

Growth for this occupation will be limited. There are more vehicles on the road leading to more accidents and more vehicles that need repair. More cars mean there will be more cracked or otherwise damaged windshields as well. However, cars have better sensors and safety equipment so the number of accidents may decrease.

Job prospects will be very good for people with formal training and certifications.
