Advanced Manufacturing Labor Market Report, 2018

Advanced Manufacturing represents one of the most demographically diverse sectors in the Portland-Vancouver Metro Area. Age, however, remains a major concern for employers – nearly one-in-four of the sector’s workforce is 55 or older and set to retire in the next decade. While job growth is expected to slow over the next decade, looming retirements and career changes mean that an estimated 94,000 job openings will exist through 2027.
