Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The domestic market for electric lighting is expected to be worth £3.4 billion in 2016-17, of which 63.1% will be satisfied by imports, while exports are forecast to account for 38.8% of revenue. Industry revenue is expected to increase at a compound annual rate of 1.3% over the five years through 2016-17 to £2 billion, fuelled by the growth in exports. Rebounding business and consumer confidence levels stimulated demand as businesses and households increased spending on lighting products. Construction activity also expanded and boosted revenue. However, manufacturing activity remained weak and restricted growth, as many manufacturing firms require lights as inputs in their products, while higher levels of import penetration also negatively affected the industry... purchase to read more

Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

By comparing the human and capital equipment factors of production, using wages and depreciation costs as proxies, IBISWorld determines the level of capital intensity. Comparatively high depreciation costs are indicative of a high level of investment in depreciable assets, such as buildings and equipment, and therefore display a high level of capital intensity. Conversely, comparatively high wage costs are indicative of high labour intensity.

The Electric Lighting Equipment Manufacturing industry displays a low level of capital intensity, with an estimated capital-to-labour ratio of 1:8.47 in 2016-17. This indicates that for every £1.00 spent on capital, £8.47 is expected to be spent on labour.
