Market Analysis

Plastic bangles have a ready market both in rural and urban areas. More so, they are liked by tourists and are normally bought for remembrance. They are therefore supplied in tourist centers, cultural centers and all shops.

Sources of Raw Materials and Equipments

Raw materials are locally available from industries dealing in plastics where acyclic plastic pipes are made out of recycled plastics and equipments can be sourced from India and China.

Government Facilities and Incentives

The government policy encourages establishment of many industries to create employment and plastic materials are an environment hazard and so recycling them is in line with government environment policy of controlling plastic bags.
