This occupation is expected to grow at a somewhat faster rate than the statewide average growth rate for all occupations through 2020.

- According to “State of the Workforce Report produced by the Lane Workforce Partnership 2012”: Manufacturing employment is forecasted to increase by 13 percent between 2010 and 2020. Job openings are projected to grow approximately 4,424 due to replacement hiring needs and growth openings in manufacturing. The need to replace workers is due, in part, to an older workforce in manufacturing- almost 50% of the Lane County workforce is between the ages of 45 and 64. The 2011 average annual wage for manufacturing workers was $45,113.
