In the ever changing economy, job security is a primary concern to individuals
and families. Many industries have to worry about a variety of variables
taking away their jobs: recessions, technology, dot-com enterprises, and
outsourcing among many others.
These variables typically don’t hinder the plumbing industry. Plumbers
and plumbing companies have inherent job security. As long as there are
toilets, sinks, and showers in use, homeowners and businesses will always
be dependent on plumbers. Plumbing is a service job that will always be
in demand; it cannot be replaced by a dot-com enterprise or be outsourced
to another country.
The future of the plumbing is bright. According to the US Bureau of Labor
Statistics, jobs in the plumbing industry are projected to grow by 21%
for plumbers from 2012 to 2022, faster than the average growth in the
economy. That is approximately 82,300 new jobs. The population is expected
to hit 438 million by 2050, and many plumbers will be retiring from their
profession in the next several years. Job growth will result of increasing
remodeling projects, repair and replacement of older systems, and more
strict plumbing codes for efficiency.
The plumbing repair and services industry is a very stable environment.
People are not willing to put off plumbing issues for long. In addition
to bathrooms and kitchens, plumbers also ensure water reaches dishwashers,
washing machines, and water heaters. People are always searching for new
ways to save money and conserve water by fixing leaks, installing low-flow
toilets, showerheads, and more efficient plumbing systems. Owning a plumbing
company is a huge opportunity to provide a necessary service to the growing
population that will always require working water systems.
Even as technology rapidly advances, plumbing is simply a necessity and
essentially recession proof. With the future of plumbing looking strong,
