There is a gap between demand and supply of wood raw material and the demand is always been higher. Scarcity of wood raw material has compelled the industrialists to cut down their production. Search has been made for alternate source of raw material for match splints. IPIRTI has collaborated with INBAR to develop technology for making bamboo match splints. 2-3 years old bamboo is quite suitable for use.

The industry can be totally managed by women folk, the two major requirements being the availability of raw material i.e. Bamboo and adhesive for bonding/moulding them into products and availability of electricity. The expected demand for this product is such that with an estimated production capacity of 30,000 trays per year, every district can have a cottage industry for tray manufacture.
