According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "India Organic Food Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026," the India organic food market size reached US$ 815 Million in 2020. Organic food products refer to the agricultural produce and poultry products that are obtained by methods that comply with the various standards of organic farming. These items are largely produced without the usage of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, fertilizers, preservatives, genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and growth hormones. This assists in not only offering fresh and chemical-free produce to end users but also aids in reducing pollution, improving soil fertility and minimizing soil erosion. These practices employ cycled resources that further help in promoting ecological balance.
We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
India Organic Food Market Trends:
The market in India is primarily driven by the growing awareness among the masses regarding the numerous health benefits offered by the consumption of organic food. These products are rich in essential nutrients and antioxidants that are widely consumed to boost immunity. Coupled with the rising health consciousness among the masses, this is providing a thrust to the market growth. Rapid urbanization, inflating disposable income levels and the increasing consumer expenditure capacities, especially on health and wellness products, are also acting as major growth-inducing factors. The market is further driven by the growing initiatives undertaken by the Government of India to promote organic farming practices among farmers. The government is providing aid to the farmers who are adopting organic farming through numerous government schemes, including the National Food Security Mission (NFSM), Mission for Integrated Development of Horticulture (MIDH), National Mission for Sustainable Agriculture (NMSA), and Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana (RKVY). Several public and private organizations are also organizing expos and food festivals in an attempt to provide budding organic food entrepreneurs a platform to connect with consumers as well as retailers, thereby creating numerous growth opportunities for new entrants. The substantial increase in foreign direct investment (FDI) in the food processing sector is another key factor contributing to the overall market growth. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of around 24% during 2021-2026
