  104. 109. FINDINGS: <ul><li>It has been the MATE’S Endeavour to constantly add new products in its product line. </li></ul><ul><li>A new product i.e. plastic fuel tanks been identified. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>As it involves the life risk, we have to meet all the safety standards. so related finding are: to use those materials which are meeting the standards of safety, design, corrosion, weight, emissions etc.   </li></ul><ul><li>The technological requirements are: extrusion blow molding machine used to manufacture plastic fuel tanks. </li></ul><ul><li>The cost involved in manufacture of complete fuel tank system assembly is INR 39,098. Which is very less comparable to the manufacturing price what world other players are offering. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  105. 110. FINDINGS: <ul><li>INDUSTRY: </li></ul><ul><li>Plastic fuel tanks, for passenger/light commercial/heavy vehicles , are not very popular in India. However, it is an established and well-accepted concept in developed countries in Western Europe and USA. </li></ul><ul><li>Considering this, establishing plastic fuel tank manufacturing capacity in India is expected to provide good opportunity in the automobile industry. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>European market response for our product is positive. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  106. 111. Suggestion: <ul><li>MATE can spread awareness about the product to the OEM’s in the country. As Indian automobile industry is growing at a very high pace, it can attract even domestic market also for the same product. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Since most of these major OEMs are based in developed countries of Europe and America and are already using plastic fuel tanks in their existing models . They can be the potential target market for MATE. </li></ul><ul><li>   </li></ul><ul><li>And also the OEM’s outsource the components from India, due to low cost involved, it can be a great opportunity for the company to enter into plastic fuel tanks. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>It is a very technical component, so we have to have technological expertise. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Already riding on the economies of scale, India offers availability of low cost raw material, cheap and high skilled labour. These advantages combine with the existing facilities and product line of MATE makes it good product to invest in. </li></ul><ul><li>   </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  107. 112. Suggestion: <ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Being a technical and highly précised product, in house development of the product involves high R&D cost. To save on the development cost, it is better to go for a technical agreement or JV with one of the major manufacturer identified. </li></ul><ul><li>The JV can aim at catering to the huge demand-supply gap. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Other Global Safety and Quality standards need to be adhered to. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Need to abide with local government regulations on manufacturing similar kinds of product. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
