Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Valves play a crucial role in many industries in the modern economy.

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.

Conversely, comparatively high wage costs are indicative of high labour intensity.

The industry has a medium level of capital intensity with a capital-to-labour ratio of 1:7.93 in 2015-16. This indicates that for every £1.00 spent on capital, £7.93 is spent on labour.
