It has been a good learning experience to do the detailed project report on setting up of the Handicraft industry in the RIICO industrial area, Jhunjhunu as a part of my MBA program. The study has been made an attempt to gain better understanding about how actually the manufacturing plant is set up. Under this, at first I generated the product idea of handicraft, matching with my profile. The main objective of the project is to the study the feasibility analysis of the handicraft manufacturing plant. After the idea generation, the industry analysis at both the global and domestic level was done to understand the market trends and other factors. Then the market analysis was done through the survey in form of questionnaires and interviews of the manufacturers. After this using the statistical techniques did the demand analysis. With this the demand estimation, the technical analysis was done. After completing the technical analysis, the financial analysis was done to check the financial feasibility of the project. It involved the preparation of cash flow statements, working capital requirement schedules, profitability statements and the balance sheets of 3 years. This provided the data for using the performance indicators and other capital budgeting techniques. Lastly, the risk analysis was done to estimate the risk involved in the project. On the whole it was a wonderful experience & a great learning opportunity. The complete project was an eye opener which added to my theoretical knowledge. There were times when I was disheartened & disappointed, but there were times when things went right & made me feel proud. Success does not come at once; one has to start right from the scratch & struggle his way through all hardships with courage & determination.



The idea of handicraft manufacturing was conceived by looking the aptitude & qualifications of the conceiver (myself).

- MBA in Marketing & HR - BCA Along with the above qualification belongingness to a Business, family will support my project. • The idea was generated as my Uncle is a manufacturer and exporter of wooden handicraft. So this project would provide me an in-depth knowledge to set up a handicraft-manufacturing mill in Jhunjhunu. • • The Indian Handicraft Industry is showing continuous growth rate of 15% every year. The profitability with which the current firms are running nationally as well as internationally is also one of the factors for conceiving the idea of handicraft manufacturing mill. Thus, taking all of the above factors into account the idea of setting up a handicraftmanufacturing mill was established.



The firm namely Shekhawati Handicrafts, Jhunjhunu will be a sole proprietorship firm and will function from Jhunjhunu under the concerned person’s name (myself).

India has been major producer and supplier of handicrafts products since very long time. Before the industrial development, this art and industry was a potential economic advantage for the country. During recent years, the importance of handicrafts has been surged due to their cultural and financial values. The small-scale industries including handicrafts can play a major role in the development of the economy of both developed and the developing countries equally. The 90-95% of the total industrial products of the world is produced in small workshops run by less than 100 people. For instance, Japan, which is at the peak of the economic development, has considered 84% of its industries as small and medium scale industries. In countries such as India and China, handicrafts are as high as the mechanized products in quality and volume, and are a major source of their foreign earnings. These countries are focusing on the development of handicraft industry, in order to strengthen the economy. The Indian handicrafts industry is highly labour intensive, cottage based and decentralized industry. The industry is spread all over the country mainly in rural and urban areas. Most of the manufacturing units are located in rural and small towns, and there is huge market potential in all Indian cities and abroad.

The Handicraft sector is highly creative sector and produces large variety of crafts products. This industry is localized segment of the domestic and international market. In India the production of craft products are done on both large and small scale. Because of low capital investment people can start their business on small scale. Through this flexibility the demand and supply can be managed Hough Indian Handicraft industry is considered a cottage industry, but it has evolved as one of the major revenue generator over the years. There has been consistent growth of 15% over few years and the industry has evolved as one of the major contributor for export and foreign revenue generation.


There is huge demand for the Indian Handicraft products in both national and international market. To match the demand and supply with quality, there is need to have greater technological support and innovativeness with the uniqueness in industry.

Demand Analysis
After conducting the market survey in the form of questionnaire and interview of the manufacturers, the next step is to estimate the effective demand in the past and the present. As per the secondary data the demand of wooden handicraft is as follows: Total Demand in units = 9200000 units/year (on an average of all items listed below) Category wise demand of wooden handicraft:

S. No. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

Items Chairs Dining tables Coffee tables Book shelves Sopha Bad Other decorative items Total export from India

Item wise demand in unit/year 15, 64,000 11, 96,000 18, 40,000 11, 04,000 4, 60,000 5, 52,000 24, 84,000 92, 00,000 units/year 26

Area Sikar Jhunjhunu Jaipur Mundwa Manufacturer 1 5 10 4 Total supply by these 20 manufacturer Supply(units/month) 400 2,410 5,650 2,100 10,560units/month

So annual demand of these 20 manufacturer is = 10560*12 = 126,720 units/ year Total manufacturer of wooden handicraft in Shekhawati region = 300 Total supply = {300*126720}/ 20 = 1900,800 units /year

Demand-Supply Gap Estimation
The demand of handicraft is 9200000 units/ year and the supply is 1900,800 units/ year. So the demand supply gap is: = 9200000-1900800 = 7299200 units/ year


This gap is currently filled in by the manufacturers who are located outside Rajasthan which is fulfilled by nearby states like U.P., Madras, and Jammu & Kashmir. So to fill this gap the handicraft manufacturing unit can be set up locally.

Demand Forecasting
The information collected in market analysis is helpful in forecasting estimated demand for my product. As 0.082% of the total market is the potential market for my product, this is the market for local brands. On the basis of this survey, my product will replace 0.082% of the total demand. The market is growing with a growth rate of 15 %; accordingly my production will be there. These also decide my capacity as on the basis of the market demand my capacity will be 60% for 1st year & than will grow accordingly. The plant will run only in one shift. The production and capacity related data will be: Year Operating capacity 60% 65% 70% 76% 82% 89% 97% No. of shifts (In 8hrs/day) 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Total Production (Units /year) 7200 7800 8400 9120 9840 10680 11640

Marketing Channel
Most producers do not sell their goods directly to the final users; between them stands a set of intermediaries performing a variety of functions. These intermediaries constitute a marketing

Manufacturers channel. The marketing channels just not only serve the markets but they also make markets.
Currently, the existing marketing channel of the wooden handicraft manufacturers is as follows:


End Users


Strategic Marketing Plan:
Wooden handicraft is being an unbranded commodity, so as such the manufacturers incur no promotional expenditure. Sometimes they just increase the commissions or the margins of these, if the targets are achieved enormously. But in order to differentiate the product and capture the existing market and to develop strong customer base, some strategic marketing plan is necessary to be designed and implemented. Various strategies that will be used being a new entrant are:• Steady supply with timely delivery to fulfil the demand of the domestic area as well as outside area and good quality would be one of the strategic strength of the marketing plan. • Apart from good quality good designs are an important factor. These designs will be based on traditional pattern so that it can impress foreign customer. • Besides from these efforts e-commerce is also a promotional tool for marketing of this product. So I will do online selling also in order to promote my product. • So orders will also be taken online apart from fax and telephonically.


Technical Analysis

Process involve in manufacturing of wooden handicraft:
A lot of skill and hard work goes into every piece of Indian wooden handicraft. It mirrors Indian culture, and each handicraft is a masterpiece in its own right. Let's take a peek at the actual process which goes into creating a piece of wooden handicraft.

Raw wood available in the form of logs is cut into planks of desired thickness and length. The piece of wood is then seasoned to obtain a texture which is favourable for carving. Decorative patterns are first drawn on the wood with a pencil. The design is then carved into the wood with a carving tool. Craftsmen inlay the wooden handicraft with metal, bone, or wood which gives off a contrast effect, enhancing the intricacies of the carved design. Different pieces of carved wood are joined together to make complete, functional objects. A protective coating is applied with a suitable wood finish.

Production Time
Wood carving is a time consuming process. The time needed by Indian craftsmen to create carved wooden handicrafts may range anywhere from a week (for small items) to a few months (for large items which require elaborate carving techniques.

Production Tools
Indian craftsmen have a wide range of tools at their disposal, depending on the stage of production. Some of them are as follows:

Saws: Powered by an electric motor, Band saws are used to cut off scrap wood effortlessly. Chain saws are used to cut logs for large carvings. Drills are primarily used to drill holes, and they are available with several attachments to perform sanding, sawing, mixing paint etc.


Lathes are used to turn wood. They are used to make spherical, cylindrical or round objects. They are handy while making vases, bowls, and plates. Primarily used for whittling and chip carving, Carving knives are also used to make the surface of the wood smooth. Wood-carving chisels have a sharp flat edge which is used to cut into the wood. They are available in bent, straight, and spoon shapes. U-gouges have curved cutting edges which form a 'u' shape, hence the name. Craftsmen use them to remove large pieces of unwanted wood, to define large shapes, and to round out the edges.

Also known as parting tools, V-gouges are used to cut fine lines. They are used for outlining while carving intricate patterns.

These tools are not specific and easily available at local market because it is manufactured locally.
