Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

Motor vehicles are produced at large manufacturing plants, which require a significant amount of capital to set up and carry substantial depreciation costs. The production process is highly automated and on a large scale so that companies can benefit from lower average costs. As a result, labour is relatively insignificant in the industry. However, employees are still needed at some stages of assembly. Some segments, such as engine rebuilding, are more labour intensive than other segments. The industry is highly capital intensive, with companies spending an average of £2.13 on labour for every £1.00 invested in capital. Over the long term, the industry is becoming more capital intensive and less labour intensive, as firms continue to look for production efficiencies.
