Job Outlook for Project Managers

According to a study of the job markets in 11 countries by the Anderson Economic Group (AEG), worldwide demand for project managers is expected to grow by 33% by 2027. That translates to a need for up to 22 million new project management professionals.

Many organizations expect a significant shortage of project management talent for the same time period. The automotive healthcare, infrastructure development, and green technologies industries may experience especially acute talent gaps.

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), project coordinators and managers earn an average of $67,280 per year. Project managers with specialized technical skills command salaries in excess of $100,000 per year, according to the PMI.
