The Electrotechnology industry in Australia generated an annual revenue of $89.5 billion in 2018/19 and employs over 352,000 people across a wide range of sectors.

New technologies such as the Internet of Things rely on computer systems and electronics, increasing demand for skilled equipment and service maintenance workers, who are able to install, repair and maintain systems.

The occupation of electronic equipment trades worker has been identified as a trade experiencing a national skills shortage.

This occupation is also on the Skilled Occupations List eligible for Australian immigration and visas, indicating a reliance on migrants to fill national skill shortages.

Around 7,000 people are forecast to be employed as electronic equipment trades workers in New South Wales (NSW) in 2019/20.

We use electronic equipment at home and in the workplace every day. This trend is likely to continue, ensuring the need for qualified technicians.
