How is asset intensity calculated?
Subsequently, one may also ask, what does capital intensity mean?
Capital intensity is the amount of fixed or real capital present in relation to other factors of production, especially labor. At the level of either a production process or the aggregate economy, it may be estimated by the capital to labor ratio, such as from the points along a capital/labor isoquant.
Keeping this in consideration, what is the capital intensity ratio at full capacity?
Capital Intensity Ratio. The capital intensity ratio reveals the amount of assets your business requires to generate $1 in sales. It equals total assets divided by annual sales. For this ratio, a smaller figure is better.
Although there is no mathematical threshold that definitively determines whether an industry is capital intensive, most analysts look to a company's capital expenses in relation to its labor expense. The higher the ratio between capital and labor expenses, the more capital intensive a business is.
