There are several reasons why interest in the disposable tableware business is growing. Firstly, the Russian market, according to experts, is saturated with plastic dishes by hardly 40%. Moreover, one city, Moscow, consumes more than half of the total volume of plastic dishes. That is, in fact, the rest of the country uses disposable tableware in insufficient sizes. The second reason why the business in the production of disposable plastic tableware has all the prospects in Russia is the rather low competition and the prospect of an annual growth of 15% in the coming years.
Despite the low cost of inexpensive tableware, a business in its production is a profitable business.
The cost of production allows you to sell manufactured products at fairly low prices, while receiving a fairly high profit. In addition, the organization of the production of disposable plastic tableware does not belong to too complex types of production, therefore it is quite within the power of individuals and entrepreneurs.
When assessing the demand for disposable tableware, many draw erroneous conclusions based on the needs of the population only.
Meanwhile, the largest market share among consumers of plastic tableware is occupied by catering enterprises and enterprises that produce food. It should be noted that the owners of various cafes, especially fast food, have long come to the conclusion that the use of disposable plastic utensils is about half as expensive as the use of other types of utensils, since it eliminates the cost of washing dishes.
The growth in the number of cafes and fast food restaurants makes the plastic tableware market truly inexhaustible.
In addition, the use of modern plastic food packaging also increases demand, and allows plastic tableware manufacturers to expand production, increasing their own profits.
The cost of organizing the production of disposable tableware depends on the volume of production. They can range from 40 to 500 thousand dollars. And marketing research will help determine the needs of the market , since the presence of another large manufacturer of tableware in the region may reduce the ability to promote finished products.
The size of the production room depends on the productivity of the equipment and the scale of production.
For a small enterprise, an area of 300 or more square meters is sufficient. However, to create a more powerful production, a large room is needed, from one and a half to 2000 square meters. Since the production of plastic utensils belongs to hazardous industries, it should be located in an industrial area, away from residential buildings, and, of course, when designing and preparing the premises, attention must be paid to ventilation and fire extinguishing means. As equipment in the production of plastic tableware, thermoforming machines, compressors, extruders, molds, color printing machines, as well as granulators and crushers for processing raw materials are used.
Most disposable tableware is made from polypropylene or polystyrene.
Often, as raw materials, manufacturers of tableware purchase waste from other plastic industries, but more often they use raw materials in the form of granules.
The production volumes of plastic tableware, with the cost of purchasing equipment of several hundred thousand dollars, amount to millions of pieces of products per month.
It can be glasses, forks and spoons, plates, containers for food packaging.
The profitability of the production of disposable plastic tableware is 35-40%. These are high rates of profitability, so it is quite possible to recoup the costs of setting up production and purchasing equipment in 2-3 years. Experience shows that the average production of plastic tableware can bring from 20 to 30 thousand dollars a month in net profit.
