With the boom in space privatization, do you believe there will be an influx of jobs for physicists?
Those jobs would mostly go to engineers since they are the one designing spacecraft, not physicists. Although I guess some physicists with the right qualifications could get the job.
Go on SpaceX's careers website and take a look at their open positions. This should give you an idea of what they are looking for.
One thing to keep in mind about physics and the job market is that physics is an academic subject. As such the job market for physicists is driven largely by the public/government support of academia in universities and national labs. Year-to-year this doesn't fluctuate a lot, especially when compared to commercial job markets that are more directly linked to economic demands. There are more professional branches of physics though. Geophysics for example has a job market that is linked with the oil industry. The medical physics job market is linked with healthcare demands
