1. INTRODUCTION
Steel measuring tapes are used for measuring length or distances. These are
handily items being encased in rolled form. As this is a small compact item, it can be
easily carried from place to place in a pocket or small bags. For sturdiness and easy
handling in outdoor activities such as on construction sites or sports fields or
factories, executives prefer to have this item in their pockets. These are available in
various lengths from 1 metre to 30 metres.

2. MARKET POTENTIAL
In view of increasing activities in construction, sports and games, new
industries etc., the demand for measuring tapes will go on increasing. There are few
units manufacturing this item. Therefore, there is good scope for new units to come
up in this activity in various parts of the country.

3. BASIS AND PRESUMPTIONS
i. For the convenience of calculation and anticipated trend, the profile has been
estimated for measuring tapes of 2 meters size only. 24000 tapes of this size
will be made annually.
ii. The unit proposes to work in single shift of 8 hours with 75% efficiency.
iii. The costs of machinery and equipment as indicated in the profile refer to a
particular make and are approximately those ruling at the time of preparation
of this report.
iv. The provisions made in respect of raw materials, personnel utilities,
