Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

Industry production processes require significant manual labour. In most cases, machinists are still necessary to assembly textile products such as bed linen, curtains, pillows, sails, canvases, awnings and sleeping bags. Expenditure on wages accounts for a larger portion of revenue than for capital. For every dollar invested in capital in the industry, an estimated $4.26 is paid as wages, indicating moderate capital intensity. Companies expend capital for replacements and improvements of machinery and equipment. Capital investment in the industry is expected to increase as firms become more innovative in manufacturing and marketing processes to enhance efficiency and reduce labour reliance.
