  • Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

    The industry’s level of capital intensity is determined by comparing the human and capital equipment factors of production, using wages and depreciation costs as proxies. Comparatively high depreciation costs indicate a high level of investment in depreciable assets, such as buildings and equipment, and therefore indicate high capital intensity. Conversely, high wage costs indicate high labour intensity.The industry exhibits a moderate level of capital intensity with an estimated labour-to-capital ratio of 1:4.18 in 2018-19. This indicates that for every £1.00 spent on capital, £4.18 will be spent on labour. The industry requires skilled employees for research and development and manufacturing activities. Operators also need machinery and equipment to assist in production...purchase to read more.
