PLASTIC (P.V.C.) LAMINATED COLLAPSIBLE TUBES
 The plastic collapsible tube is a product of daily use because every paste, like
thing is packed in this tube. According to an estimate, the population of India
is more than 100 crores and there are number of persons who might be using
collapsible tubes in one way or the other. Once the tube has been used, it is
discarded and cannot be used again; hence it is a consumable item. Plastic
collapsible tubes can be beautifully printed in multi-colors which have better
eye appeal. These plastic collapsible tubes are being widely used for packaging
of adhesives, art colors, creams, lubricants etc. They are suitable for packaging
of lotion cosmetics, tooth-pastes, shaving creams, hair cream; face cream, auto

of lotion cosmetics, tooth-pastes, shaving creams, hair cream; face cream, auto
cleaners, polishes etc.
 The packaging industry is estimated at Rs 150 bn and is growing at 14-15%
annually. This growth, according to industry watchers, is expected to double in
the next two years. It is estimated that more than 80% of packaging in India
constitutes rigid packaging, the rest being flexible. Flexible packaging includes
paper, plastics (PVC, LDPE, HDPE, BOPP, polyester and poly-propylene), cloth
and metal foils, especially of aluminium, besides jute and HDPE bags for bulk
handling. The potential for packaging industry can be seen in the present low
per capita consumption of two base materials, packaging paper and plastics.
The overall growth rate of the industry has tapered off from 40% in early 1990s
to around 9%. The flexible packaging industry is expected to grow at about 10-
15% per annum in the coming years. Thus, it is a good project for
entrepreneurs to invest.
ZINC SULPHATE (AGRICULTURE GRADE)
 Zinc sulfate is a powder that is colorless and completely water-soluble. The
product can be used in different applications, including some connected with
maintaining good health. A number of over the counter products contain some
level of zinc sulfate, as well as many prescription medications. In terms of
healthcare uses, zinc sulfate is often included as an ingredient in products
designed to treat skin conditions. In particular, over-the-counter medications
for acne are likely to contain the compound. Lotions and topical creams that
are used to treat boils are also likely to contain at least trace amounts of the
sulfate.

sulfate.
 Zinc will play a larger role in the fertilizer market as demand grows for its use
as a micronutrient in growing agricultural crops. Zinc is necessary for energy
production, protein synthesis and growth regulation within plants, and can
limit plant growth if it is not available in sufficient quantities during key
stages of plant development. Demand is already growing in some regions. In
2012 and 2013, for example, China included zinc fertilizer in the national
fertilizer recommendations for major crop production. Overall, the move is
expected to increase zinc fertilizer production and use in China by an
additional 50,000 metric tons to 100,000 metric tons annually. Global zinc
chemical production will soon be reaching very high utilization rates. New
capacity for zinc chemicals is expected to come online during the next five
years, most likely in Asia and in China. So any new entrants can venture in to
this industry.
LPG CYLINDERS
 Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) is a term describing a group of
hydrocarbon-based gases derived from crude oil and or natural
gas. Natural gas purification produces about 55 percent of all
LPG, while crude oil refining produces about 45 percent. LPG
is mostly propane, butane or a mix of the two. It also includes
ethane, ethylene, propylene, butylene, isobutene and
isobutylene; these are used primarily as chemical feed stocks
rather than fuel.

rather than fuel.
 The LPG cylinder industry has grown phenomenally since
early 1980s, when there were just about a dozen
manufacturers. There was not much of LPG (liquefied
petroleum gas) available for distribution and hence the need
for cylinders was limited. Bharat Petroleum Corporation
(BPCL) has accordingly initiated the process of launching the
transparent fiberglass cylinders as a premium product in the
country. The corporation has proposed making these cylinders
available on demand with delivery within two hours. Due to
demand growth, it is a good project.
LINEAR ALKYL BENZENE (L.A.B)
 Linear alkyl benzene is a family of organic compounds with the
formula C6H5CnH2n+1. Typically, n lies between 10 and 16,
although generally supplied as a tighter cut, such as C12-C15, C12-
C13 and C10-C13, for detergent use. The CnH2n+1 chain is un-
branched. They are sometimes called LABs. They are mainly
produced as intermediate in the production of surfactants, for use in
detergent. Since the 1960s, LABs have emerged as the dominant
precursor of biodegradable detergents.

precursor of biodegradable detergents.
 India is reeling under over supply of LAB, as the domestic demand is
comparatively lower than the domestic capacity and production. The
total domestic demand is estimated at around 300000 TPA, while the
capacity is close to 500000 TPA. The players are exporting their
surplus to ensure higher capacity utilization. IOC has established
world's largest single-train LAB plant in Baroda with an installed
capacity of 120000 TPA in August 2004. Tamil Nadu Petro products
has LAB capacity of 120000 TPA. As a whole it is a good project for
entrepreneurs for investment.
COPPER MELTING AND COPPER INGOT ROLLING WITH
COPPER WIRE DRAWING
 Copper is mankind’s oldest metal, dating back some 10,000 years. All
of the great civilizations of the past used copper and copper alloys
(principally bronze and later brass) for both decorative and utilitarian
purposes. Copper was used for military purposes, artistic applications
such as church bells and statuary, tools and numerous other
functional objects. However, it was the Industrial revolution that
brought about a tremendous change in the production and
consumption of copper and copper alloys.

 Global industrial demand for refined copper is over 14 mn tonne and
its usage is growing by around 3% per annum. Developing countries
account for over one-third of refined copper consumption. The
domestic copper pipes and tubes industry is estimated to have a
turnover of Rs 10 bn. It is expected to return a 25% growth in the
next two-three years, according to industry estimates. A substantial
part of total demand is met through domestic production. The gap is
met through imports, growing at 25% by end users, such as
refrigeration industry. Due to demand growth, it is a good project for
entrepreneurs to invest. Any entrepreneurs venture into this field
will be successful.
BEER, WHISKY & RUM
 Beer is the world’s most widely consumed alcoholic beverage; it is the
third-most popular drink overall, after water and tea. It is thought by
some to be the oldest fermented beverage. Beer is produced by the
saccharification of starch and fermentation of the resulting sugar.
Whisky is distilled from a grain mash, at below 160 proof, so as to
maintain the flavors of the grain. The spirits category of "Whisky"
encompasses several different products, including: Bourbon, Corn
whisky, Rye whisky,Canadian, Irish or Scotch whisky. Rum is one of
the oldest and most varied of distilled spirits. It is distilled from the

the oldest and most varied of distilled spirits. It is distilled from the
extracted juice of the sugar cane plant, or in some cases the by-
product of the refining process known as molasses.
 Of the over Rs 280 bn liquor industry (excluding beer) selling around
450 mn cases annually, a large peg of which (67%) is whisky, followed
by brandy and gin at 13%, rum at 17% while the white spirits account
for 3% of the market share. Of this, the Indian-made foreign liquor
(IMFL) accounts for Rs 78 bn (86 mn cases) with whisky alone
constituting 95%. Besides, there is a large 223 mn case market of low-
priced country liquor. Indian spirit market also consumes branded
country liquor worth Rs 125 bn and unbranded country liquor worth
Rs 50 bn. As a whole establishing Beer, Whisky & Rum plant is one of
the project which has good prospect for the entrepreneurs to invest.
TURMERIC AND GINGER OIL
 Ginger, one of the most important and oldest of spices used in every
kinds of food preparation. The rhizomes known in the trade as hand
or races reach the spice trade either, with the outer cortical layers
intact (Coated unscraped ginger) or with the outer coating partially or
completely removed. To improve their appearance some grades of
ginger are bleached by various means by liming.
 Ginger is cultivated in India, China, Japan, Indonesia, Australia,
Nigeria and West Indies islands. India is the largest producer and

 Ginger is cultivated in India, China, Japan, Indonesia, Australia,
Nigeria and West Indies islands. India is the largest producer and
consumer of ginger in the world. In India ginger is produced in the
states of Orissa, Kerala, Karnataka, Arunachal Pradesh, West
Bengal, Sikkim and Madhya Pradesh. Kerala is the largest ginger
producing state, accounting for about 33 percent of the total
production in India. Out of the total production, about 30 percent is
converted into dry ginger, while 50 percent is consumed as green
ginger and the rest as seed materials. Dry ginger is produced mainly
in Kerala, a major share of which is exported. As a whole it is a good
project for entrepreneurs for investment.
DEHYDRATED ONION & ONION POWDER
 Onion is one of major bulb crop grown in India which presently attracting
attention of all persons due to rise in prices. The price is directly related to
supply-Demand of the commodity. An Indian farmer normally pays more
attention to grow those crops which are fetched very good market prices during
last season. To get the very good prices during present season, many farmers
switch to grow Onion crop due to which supply in the market increases many
fold and market glut fetches very low prices to farmer’s commodity such as
onions.

 In India dehydration of many food products especially vegetables and some
fruits are in practices at home and industry level throughout year. Onion is an
important vegetable crop grown in India and forms a part of daily diet in
almost all households throughout the year. India is the second largest producer
of onion in the world 7 onion is one of the most important but perishable groups
known. It is also used for medical purpose. But due to non-availability of
appropriate post-harvest storage facilities, 20-25% of the total produced onions
are wasted, which in terms of value amounts to crores of rupees. As a whole it
is a good project for entrepreneurs for investment. Any entrepreneurs venture
into this field will be successful.
HDPE WOVEN SACKS
 High density polyethylene or HDPE woven sacks have become a versatile
commodity in the packaging industry Introduced for the first time in India
during the year 1969 it has over the years replaced the conventional jute bags
to a large extent. HDPE sacks have an edge over the conventional jute sacks in
the sense that the former are light in weight, strong and attractive. These
sacks are immune to the effect of corrosion, decay, moisture, atmosphere, rats,
rodents, moths and insects. Being superior in quality and economic as
compared to the traditional jute material, these modern sacks have gradually
captured a large market for packing fertilizers, chemicals, food stuffs, animal
foods, oil cakes etc. Sacks made of HDPE are laminated with LDPE inside it.

foods, oil cakes etc. Sacks made of HDPE are laminated with LDPE inside it.
This gives protection against moisture, air and the material packed cannot
penetrate out of the sack.
 The current demand of woven sacks in North Eastern Region is estimated to be
in the range of 600 - 650 MTPM of which only 60 - 70% of the requirement is
fulfilled by local industries, Cement, Fertilizer and Flour Mills are major
woven sacks consuming sectors in North-Eastern Region. The only fertilizer
complex (urea based) of NER is located in Assam with installed capacity of 0.5
MMTPA, and has reported a production growth of 12% in the past five years.
Apart from urea complex, there are 9 bio-fertilizer units in the region with a
total installed capacity of 1115 MTPA. Thus, it is a good project for
entrepreneurs to invest.
BITTER GOURD (KARELA) POWDER
 Karela is a vegetable which is grown in every part of India. Karela is especially grown in
India in from April to August. In the session it is abundantly available. It is generally used
as vegetable throughout India. It has also good medicinal value. It is generally bitter in
taste. Karela powder is now special product which can be produced by spray drying process.
Bitter gourd fruit is a good source of carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, and minerals and
have the highest nutritive value among cucurbits. The vitamin C content of Chinese bitter
gourd varies significantly. Bitter gourd has been used for centuries in the ancient
traditional medicine of India, China, Africa, and Latin America. Bitter gourd extracts
possess antioxidant, antimicrobial, antiviral, antihepatotoxic and antiulcerogenic
properties while also having the ability to lower blood sugar. These medical activities are
attributed to an array of biologically active plant chemicals, including triterpenes, pisteins

properties while also having the ability to lower blood sugar. These medical activities are
attributed to an array of biologically active plant chemicals, including triterpenes, pisteins
and steroids.
 As bitter gourd powder finds its major application in ayurvedic medicine, it would be
suffice to gauge the demand for ayurvedic medicine. Ayurvedic medicines are produced by
several thousand companies in India, but most of them are quite small, including
numerous neighborhood pharmacies that compound ingredients to make their own
remedies. It is estimated that the total value of products from the entire Ayurvedic
production in India is on the order of one billion dollars (U.S.). The industry has been
dominated by less than a dozen major companies for decades, joined recently by a few
others that have followed their lead, so that there are today 30 companies doing a million
dollars or more per year in business to meet the growing demand for Ayurvedic medicine.
So any new entrants can venture in to this industry.
