Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

As is common among chemical industries, this industry relies on a number of highly capital-intensive production processes. For every dollar spent on wages, about 76 cents are invested in capital. However, there are significant capital intensity variations among the various product segments. For example, industrial gas manufacturing relies more heavily on large and sophisticated equipment than other segments and therefore requires higher capital intensity levels. Variations also exist among establishments, ranging from highly automated firms to labor-intensive batch operations. In most instances, capital intensity increases with scale.
