Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

The Medical and Orthopaedic Supplies Retailers industry has a low level of capital intensity, which is characteristic of the labour-intensive retailing sector. Labour costs are generally incurred through the need to hire knowledgeable and efficient staff members. For hearing aid retailers, qualified audiologists are often required to conduct tests for customers and to fit in hearing aids. For other retailers, staff members are required to have a reasonable knowledge of the products in order to effectively assist customers. Other employees are expected to stock the shop floors, carry out sales, and perform administrative duties that arise in line with the running of the business. Wages are estimated to account for 19.3% of revenue in 2016-17.
