Construction is a highly volatile industry, and carpentry jobs tend to rise and fall with shifting industry trends.
During boom times, the demand for skilled carpenters tends to be very high. Carpenters are needed to frame and finish new buildings, expand existing plants and participate in remodeling projects. During recessions, steady work can be difficult to find, although skilled craftsman may still be needed for maintenance and remodeling jobs that must be done regardless of temporary market conditions.
In addition to expansion/recession cycles, factors that can affect the demand for carpenters include changes in season (predictable), local weather (unpredictable), interest rate changes, and attrition rates within the industry as workers retire or leave for other kinds of employment.
