Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

The level of capital intensity in the industry can be measured using the capital-to-labour ratio. Using depreciation as a proxy for capital and total industry wages as a proxy for labour, the industry has a moderate capital-to-labour ratio of approximately 0.22:1. This means that for each £1.00 invested in capital, an estimated £4.51 is spent on wages. Technically advanced, high-end computer equipment and software is required for most post-production activities, contributing to the industry’s capital requirements.
