Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

The industry's heavy investment in machinery and plant equipment make this industry moderately capital-intensive. Beverage and food can manufacturers are particularly reliant on technology because the manufacturing process of those products is almost entirely automated. In addition, most companies' capital expenditure programs are designed to take advantage of technological developments in an attempt to enhance productivity and contain costs. IBISWorld estimates that, in 2016, operators will spend $0.19 on machinery, equipment and capital expenses for every dollar spent on wages.
