What the Future Holds

In 2010, the Automotive Service Association (ASA) reported nearly 35,000 U.S. collision shops who employed some 225,400 collision repair specialists. Those technicians were responsible for repairing an estimated 42 million vehicles that year. The auto-body industry continues to be big business — with nearly $27.9 billion in sales in 2009, said the ASA. And that doesn’t count the additional 6,285 franchised dealerships with body shops generating an estimated $7.2 billion in 2009, according to the National Automobile Dealership Association.

  • Median hourly wages: $18.33
