Many people like to make assumptions based on trends and current statistics when it comes to the future. We can never make guaranteed predictions about the future, but we can engage in the conversation. Most of us struggle to know all the mechanics that make our vehicles function when it comes to our cars. That is where auto technicians come into play. The Auto Repair Industry has been known as a lucrative business, but does that assumption still hold today?
There are trends in the Auto Repair Industry that can give us a better insight into what is going on. In recent years, the technological advancements we have made in vehicles have made it harder for local Auto Repair shops to keep up with the knowledge and tools to repair advanced vehicles such as electric or hydrogen vehicles.
One trend that is majorly impacting the Auto Repair Industry is a shortage of technicians. The need for technicians is largely due to millions of technicians retiring in the next ten years, and there are not enough incoming technicians that will fill the need they are leaving behind. Studies have suggested that there are not enough people interested in becoming auto technicians, most likely due to the perceived complexity of automobiles.
So is there a bright future for the Auto Repair Industry? The good news is: yes. Auto technicians can make an average of 40-60 thousand dollars per year depending on your state, making it an above-average paying career. If you or someone you know is interested in learning this trade skill, it has never been a more lucrative time.
