Overall employment of machinists and tool and die makers is projected to show little or no change from 2016 to 2026. Employment growth will vary by specialty.
Employment of machinists is projected to grow 2 percent from 2016 to 2026, slower than the average for all occupations. With improvements in technologies, such as computer numerically controlled (CNC) machine tools, autoloaders, high-speed machining, and lights-out manufacturing, machinists will still be required to set up, monitor, and maintain these systems.
Employment of tool and die makers is projected to decline 7 percent from 2016 to 2026. Advances in automation, including CNC machine tools, should reduce demand for tool and die makers to perform tasks, such as programming how parts fit together, that computer software can perform.
