Dairy Industry in India to Grow at 13.2% During 2023-2028, Fostered by Rising Demand for RTE Products

December 20, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Dairy Industry in India: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028,” the dairy industry in India reached a value of INR 14,899.8 Billion in 2022. The dairy industry encompasses the processing and harvesting of milk for the manufacturing of various dairy products, such as cheese, ice cream, butter, and yogurt. These goods are rich in carbohydrates, protein, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, riboflavin, and vitamins A, D, and B12, which aids in supporting body growth, building and repairing muscle tissues, maintaining strong bones, and regulating blood pressure. Apart from this, dairy production plants employ two types of processing, namely heat treatment and dehydration. These approaches help in extending the shelf life, retaining the nutritional contents, and ensuring the safety of the end-product for human consumption.

Dairy Industry in India Market Trends:

The growth of the dairy industry in India can be primarily attributed to rapid urbanization and industrialization, along with inflating disposable incomes, which, in turn, is facilitating the demand for ready-to-eat (RTE) products, such as frozen desserts, butter, milk powder, and yogurt. In line with this, rising health consciousness and evolving food habits have further led to a shift toward organic dairy products and the establishment of fast-food chains, wherein different varieties of cheese, buttermilk, and condensed milk are employed as key ingredients. Additionally, the extensive utilization of dairy products, including milk, ghee, and paneer in diverse traditional recipes is acting as another major growth-inducing factor. Apart from this, numerous initiatives are being undertaken by the Government of India (GoI), such as the National Dairy Program (Phase-1), to improve fodder and feed availability, milk procurement network, and promote dairy farming practices, which is creating a positive outlook for the market. A significant increase in research and development (R&D) activities in the dairy industry to incorporate innovative technologies in the production and distribution process, along with the advent of modern and improving retail facilities and cold chain logistics are projected to drive the market growth further. Looking forward, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.2% during 2023-2028.
