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. High depreciation costs indicate substantial investment in depreciable assets like buildings and equipment, suggesting high capital intensity. Conversely, comparatively high wage costs indicate high labour intensity.

The industry has a low level of capital intensity, with an estimated capital-to-labour ratio of 1:8.92 in 2016-17. This indicates that for every £1 spent on capital, £8.92 is spent on labour. The industry has high wage costs relative to the sector, reflecting the small-scale manual nature of much of the industry's production capacity. purchase to read more
