How to use "Capital intensive" in context?

Capital intensive simply means that a business engages in more expensive or intensive capital investment than a similar business without that capital investment. The reasoning for this is typically that such an investment will yield a greater return on investment than a less expensive or capital intensive investment.

This might involve more expensive or technologically advanced equipment, larger and more visible property holdings, or a greater number of employees. As a result, businesses that are more capital intensive tend to be more profitable and employ a greater number of workers than businesses that are less capital intensive.

In terms of business efficiency, capital intensive businesses often operate at a higher level than their less capital intensive counterparts.
