With $3.3 trillion in sales last year, the crane market is expected to grow to $7.5 trillion by 2022, according to an industry analyst.
That’s a huge market.
But how big is it?
There are about 12,500 companies in the crane and delivery services business, according the National Crop Industry Association.
The median age is 50.
But as the demand for large-scale, high-margin commercial-scale industrial robots and machinery grows, the workforce has also increased.
The industry grew by 7% to $5.6 trillion last year.
With demand for robotic machinery rising, there are more opportunities for workers, said Jason M. Fagenson, the association’s executive vice president.
The crane industry employs about 16 million people.
A lot of the jobs are at the very high end of the industry.
The biggest employers are large companies like FedEx and UPS, which employ more than 10 million people and deliver about 10 million tons of goods each year, according a 2016 report by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Some of the companies are based in California, such as FedEx and Home Depot.
The U.K.-based company Caterpillar has about 700,000 workers.
The company says it employs more than 1 million people worldwide.
The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) estimates that about 7,500 workers are currently employed in the assembly, service and repair industry.
With the growing demand for high-tech, automated equipment, companies such as Amazon, Microsoft and Google are also growing rapidly.
Amazon has about 2.2 million employees worldwide and Google about 4.7 million.
The IAM says the U:s largest employer in the industry is UPS with 2.5 million.
Microsoft has about 1.9 million employees and Google 2.3 million.
They are among the largest employers.
