Ratios to determine how capital intensive an industry is??

What are the ratios which can be used to determine how Capital Intensive an industry is?? I am thinking of Capex/Depr… Somebody said Capex/EBIDTA… Pls help me to understand this concept.

ROA. You can calculate on fixed assets or total assets.

A capital intensive industry have low return per unit of assets.

I’d say Fixed TO should be low for capital-intensive businesses. ROA is affected by profitability, so FATO would be a ‘truer’ measure.

Capital Intensity Ratio = Total Assets / Sales


= 1 / Asset Turnover.
