Indian Farming Market to Reach INR 41,148.7 Billion by 2027, Propelled by Favorable Government Initiatives

April 25, 2019

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Indian Farming Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the Indian farming market size reached INR 22,516 Billion in 2021. Farming is the activity of growing crops and keeping and rearing animals with the objective of cultivating food products or raw materials. Farming is the primary source of livelihood for more than half of the Indian population. Home to a vast agricultural land and agro-ecological diversity, the agriculture and allied sectors account for a significant share in India’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Over the years, the farming sector has undergone significant developments in terms of farm mechanization, improved irrigation techniques and easy availability of credit.

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.

Market Trends:

Rapid population growth along with expanding household incomes across India are providing an impetus to farm production across the region. In addition to this, contract farming, an agreement between corporates and farmers for the production and supply of agricultural products, is an emerging concept in the region which is contributing significantly to the market growth. Apart from this, growing health-consciousness among consumers has escalated the demand for organically grown food as it is considered safer than conventional products. As a result, this has led farmers to shift from chemical farming to organic farming. Furthermore, initiatives such as AGRI-UDAAN undertaken by the Government of India to improve the agricultural infrastructure of the country is also catalyzing the growth of the market. The Government has also implemented the Transport and Marketing Assistance (TMA) scheme which aims to provide financial aid for the marketing and transportation of farm products to boost agriculture exports. Looking forward, the market is anticipated to reach INR 41,148.7 Billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 10.5% during 2022-2027.
