Plant Cost

Whenever you’re taking a Decision to establish a Mineral Water Plant, obliviously few questions will come to your mind like :


1. What is the Profit Margin?

2. How much is the investment?

3. How much is the ROI (Return on Investment)?

4. What are the Risk Factors?

5. How to minimize the Risk Factors?

 Now I will attempt to answer this questions as follows.

1. What is the Profit Margin ?

There is a separate page on this site called “plant layout.”You can get a table below the Layout which explains the cost of production & profit margin.

2. How much is the investment?

The investment truly depends upon the type of plant & the Capacity of plant Let me explain this in details.

• Type of Plant :

Some people may look at a prosperous Jar Market, at the same time some other may feel that they should go for bottles, jars & Pouches. Some of you may feel that they will start with just bottle filling. Empty Bottles bought out where as some will want to have complete bottle making Set as well.

So the decision of “ Which type of Plant” Truly depends upon your targeted Market segments. Once you decide what to have in your product mix, you can decide the machinery and other things. Read this article to get an idea of how to decide the plant Capacity.

Now to arrive at the Mineral Water Plant Cost, These are the elements which are combined each other.

Machinery & Equipment

All machines like Water Treatment, Bottling, Lab equipment etc. will come under this.

• Utilities : Water Electricity Air Conditioning, air Compressor etc.

• Liaison Expenses : ISI License & other Government License expenditure.

• Consultancy Charges : Like ISI Consultancy project funding etc.

• Building Cost : Construction, interior cost

3. How much is the ROI (Return on Investment)?

Usually , if the business is run professionally , the invested money will be returned to the investor by the business in 3.5 years. So you can say that ROI is 30 % per annum.

4. What are the Risk Factors ?

After working closely in this industry, I have observed that the TOP risk factor in this business is Improfessional Management of the business. I will highlight main elements in this :-

(a) Execution Failure :-

Such a plant calls for detailed steps to get executed in time, with detailed clear-cut duties explained. If not, there is a mess of things & plant fails to get executed in time, in turn you will be left with LOSSES.

(b) No Proper Co-ordination :-

After you finalize the plant supplier, failing to do a proper co-ordination with him is the major reason. Non-appointment of a Project Guy OR not maintaining schedules will result in delay in execution

(c) No Documentation :-

People go by intuition, without doing proper study on what they have to sell, what market they have, how are they going about it etc. And they do not keep any documentation about this. Then misunderstandings, and all……

(d) Absence of Parallel execution system :-

It means , at a time you will need to carry out various cycles, absence of this will again increase project period.

Inside our Training Course , we offer a Project Planning Ebook which clarifies you these concepts

(e) Habit of doing everything on your own :-

Keep in mind, you are a businessman, and a businessman delegates, does not do everything. As an entrepreneur, your job is to get people, tools. And giving the tools to the best people who are going to do that. Watch this interview with Richard Branson, who owns over 300 companies now.

5. How to minimize the Risk Factors ?

I know, 100 % risks can’t be avoided, but can be reduced to a great extent, no doubts. Here is how you can do it :-

    am planning to 100ltr start minaral water bottle plant in U.p. in Barabanki Dist. I need know what equipments required and cost of the eqipmnets …etc.

    waterman Reply:

    Dear Prashant,

    100 Ltr is too small, it can’t be called as a Mineral Water Plant. In fact , it can be a domestic RO.

    Do you mean to say 1000 Ltrs ?
