Which electrician job is most likely to be replaced by automation?

There’s been a lot of buzz lately about the job losses that could hit the industry if robots and other automation take over.

But what about the other jobs?

According to the National Association of Home Builders, the average electrician salary in the United States is about $50,000, while construction workers and electricians make $55,000 and $60,000 respectively.

So how does a $50k electrician do in the field?

According a survey of the nation’s electricians by the American Council on Tall Buildings and Architectural Engineering, there’s some evidence that a lot more automation is going to be coming soon, particularly for those who handle wiring, which can be automated.

The survey found that more than half of the country’s electrical contractors have started using automation, but more than 40% of the surveyed electricians believe they will be replaced within the next 10 years.

What does that mean for you, the electrician?

According the survey, more than 70% of respondents expect the average electricity company to automate by 2020, but only 25% of contractors think they’ll have enough automation to keep pace.

In terms of the workforce, a lot will depend on what your company is doing.

According to one survey, the number of electricians in the US is set to grow by about 8% annually, and in 2018, about 8.5% of electrician positions were filled by robots.

The majority of contractors in the survey thought automation would help their bottom line, but there was a significant disconnect between the companies responses and what the public expects.

Some contractors had a hard time understanding the public’s concerns, and some said they were worried about losing their jobs to automation.

Another survey of electric contractors in New York found that they were more concerned about automation and robots displacing human workers than their own employees.

The real question for electricians is: What are you going to do when your company stops using human workers to make electric connections?
