Cheese Market in India to Reach INR 262.6 Billion by 2028, Triggered by Rapid Expansion of Fast-Food Chains

February 20, 2019

The latest research report by IMARC Group, titled “Cheese Market in India: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028”, finds that the cheese market in India reached a value of INR 71.3 Billion in 2022. India represents the largest producer of milk in the world due to which milk is readily available as a raw material for cheese production. Cheese consists of several nutrients including proteins, fats, calcium, phosphorous, zinc, minerals, and vitamins A and B12. As a result, it is being promoted by manufacturers as a healthy and high protein snack for both adults and children. With changing consumption patterns, cheese has emerged as one of the most popular dairy products in India and is used in dishes like mashed potatoes, soups, sauces, macaroni and casseroles. Besides this, it is also being added as a taste enhancer in various Indian recipes, such as dosa, parathas and uttapam. 

Cheese Market in India Trends:

Globalization has led to a rise in the number of fast-food outlets and high-end bakeries in India. Owing to this, an increasing number of people are shifting to new cuisines which include cheese-based dishes. In addition, rising awareness about the health benefits offered by cheese has created a high demand for the product in India. Moreover, manufacturers are developing cheese variants with low fat and salt content to expand their consumer base. For instance, the Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation, popularly known as Amul, has launched low-calorie cheese called slim cheese to attract health-conscious consumers. Along with this, Parag Milk Foods has introduced international flavors, such as paprika and jalapeno, in India in order to expand its market operations. Apart from this, many international brands are also entering the Indian cheese market. Looking forward, the market is expected to reach a value of INR 262.6 Billion by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 24.06% during 2023-2028.
