Employment of carpenters is projected to grow 20 percent from 2010 to 2020, faster than the average for all occupations. Population growth should result in new-home construction—the largest segment employing carpenters—which will stimulate the need for many new workers. Demand for carpenters is expected to be driven by home remodeling needs as well.
The need to repair and replace roads and bridges also will spur some employment growth for carpenters. Much of this growth, however, depends on spending by federal and state governments as they attempt to upgrade existing infrastructure.
Construction of factories and powerplants also may result in some new jobs.
