Employment

Major employers:

  • Water and sewer utilities
  • Local government agencies (sewage and water departments)
  • Plumbing companies

Outlook

Demand for this occupation will be strong. The construction of new power plants and factories should increase demand for pipelayers. In addition, pipelayers will continue to be needed to repair and maintain commercial and industrial pipe systems. Work will also come from building renovation.

Work for pipelayers can be affected by the economy, especially when the rate of new construction slows. However, maintenance of pipe systems will always be required. Thus, this occupation will be less affected by the economy than other construction workers.
