In India too, the standard of living of people is improving with increasing incomes. And as man’s standard of living improves, he wants to keep his life full of more material comforts, facilities, so that his life can be easier and easier. Talking about modern amenities, the name of the car probably comes second after the house.
That is to say, as people’s incomes are improving, so are the things that are comfortable in their standard of living. While very few people in India used to have their own car, at present, even in an average city, you will find their personal car in almost every house.
Apart from this, today the roads have also expanded on a large scale compared to before, today most of the villages of India have been connected to the Prime Minister’s Road Scheme. Due to this, people can also see their own car near rural India today. There are many car tools. But today we are going to talk about a car accessory, which is used not only in new and old cars but in all types of vehicles that have a front windshield.
This includes buses, trucks, jeeps, cars, everything, yes this windshield wiper which is used in the rain to clean the rain drops from the windshield and to clear the snow and dew etc.
Uses and markets of wind shield wipers
Wind shield wipers are used to remove vehicle glass or wind shield rain drops, dew drops, snow, etc. When you are driving and it rains on the road, in this situation, rain drops continuously fall on the windshield of the vehicle, so that nothing is visible in front of the glass. In this situation, wind shield wipers are used to remove those rain drops, so that the vehicle can be driven safely.
It is legally mandatory to use windshields in all vehicles made in India. Because if a vehicle does not have a wind shield wiper, then the chances of an accident in the rain are very high, so it has been made legally mandatory.
There can be many types of wind shield wipers depending on their characteristics, in the car these wipers are automated by the electric motor. That is, in the bar, you need to press a button, after which the wind shield wiper starts working automatically. A wind shield wiper is not only mounted on the front side of the vehicle but also on the rear side so that both the front and rear can be easily seen while driving.
If you start this business of making wind shield wipers, then your customers will be the automobile companies that manufacture vehicles. Apart from this, they will also be mechanics and auto parts stores who sell vehicle parts. Because windshield wipers are inevitably needed in every new old vehicle.
Space for wind shield wiper making factory
To start this kind of business, you do not need to rent a place or building in a crowded area. Rather, the entrepreneur can either lease non-agricultural land in a deserted place away from the city or take it if a built-up building is being rented out, because doing so will save the cost of construction and civil work.
By the way, wind shield wipers are not heavy items that require a lot of space to store. But despite this, separate space is needed to store the goods produced, and separate place to store raw materials.
At least 20 HP of electricity may be required to operate the machinery and equipment used in such a factory. Many electric panels and devices are likely to be used to safely deliver it to machines etc. Therefore, there is also a need to build an electric room in the factory premises.
As everyone knows this, in a factory, many tasks have to be done from the attendance of the employees to the availability of raw materials, orders, counting the goods produced outside the gate, keeping a record of the distributor, etc. An office is also needed to handle all these tasks.
In total, about 1500 square feet of space may be required to start this business (Windshield Wiper Manufacturing). But in the initial stages, the entrepreneur may need to spend millions of rupees only on leasing or buying land and getting construction work done in it. Therefore, if the entrepreneur wants, he can take a built building to do this work on rent up to ₹ 25000 per month.
