It completely depends on the industry.  Some industries can sustain very low debt to capital ratios, typically cyclical industries like commodities or early-stage companies like startups. These might have a 0-20% debt to capital ratio.  Other industries such as banking and insurance can have up to 90% debt to capital ratios.
