They say you can never have too much of a good thing, and with a new, cool, must-have product being launched every day, product manufacturing has the potential to be a lucrative business format. While large, sophisticated products require considerable capital investments, there are plenty of opportunities for product manufacturing that require comparatively smaller startup capital, and which can, in turn, still yield a healthy return on investment.

Sometimes a single great idea is enough to create a game-changing business. So before embarking on your start-up journey, consider these small factory business ideas. Put your backyard, garage or a vacant place to good use and consider hiring the machinery you need to reduce costs.
