High Tariffs, No Worries

September 28, 2019

The future of employment in Computer-Aided Design(CAD) might be of some concern for many of us, as we continue to hear concerns of an upcoming recession and a continuing trade war with China. CAD work, after all, is very much tied architecture and engineering which is two industries that are very much tied to economic growth.

Despite some concerns with Tariffs, these industries continue to maintain a record high in revenue in August but what does this mean for the coming months and the rest of 2019.

Here are some things that we are keeping an eye on, in regards to the upcoming tariffs and the rest of the year.

  1. High Emphasis on 3D Printing. Companies will continue to invest in 3D options to try to save money, and create models and products that will help them solve real-life problems.
  2. Jobs Moving back to the States. Manufacturing in China and overseas is no longer as cheap as it used to be, due to trade tariffs. Instead, companies like Apple are looking to move manufacturing back to the United States that will allow them to create and produce products, that have potential to bring more jobs in engineering and CAD back to the United States. 
  3. Hiring to start to Slow Down. Hiring as we have predicted before might start to slow down, however businesses are going to continue to look for outside resources to get the jobs done and this might be great work for contractors and part-time workers in the CAD industry.

The end of the year still has plenty of options yet and it will be interesting to see what it will bring.
