Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Valves play a crucial role in the modern economy.

The United Kingdom accounts for a relatively small percentage of the global valve market, but has a significant role in some segments. International trade has a substantial influence on industry performance as exports account for a major share of revenue, while imports satisfy a large share of domestic demand.

Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

The level of capital intensity is determined by comparing the human and capital equipment factors of production, using wages and depreciation costs as proxies.

Conversely, comparatively high wage costs are indicative of high labour intensity.

The industry has a low level of capital intensity with a capital-to-labour ratio of 1:11.95 in 2014-15. This indicates that for every £1.00 spent on capital £11.95 is spent on labour. Capital costs are low due to the relatively low use of volume production line methods. On the other hand, labour costs are reasonably high... purchase to read more
