Poultry refers to domesticated birds raised for various purposes, primarily for their meat and eggs. Some common types of poultry include chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese, and quails. These birds are specifically bred and managed within the poultry industry to meet the demand for poultry products. Poultry farming is a significant sector of the agricultural industry, providing a steady supply of protein-rich meat and eggs to consumers worldwide. Poultry farms can vary in size and production methods. Large-scale commercial poultry farms typically employ intensive production systems, where birds are raised in confined spaces to maximize efficiency and output. However, there are also smaller-scale and free-range operations that prioritize animal welfare and sustainability. Poultry products are widely available in supermarkets, grocery stores, and restaurants, catering to the demand for affordable and nutritious protein sources. The poultry industry plays a crucial role in meeting global food requirements and contributes significantly to the economies of many countries.

In India, poultry consumption has been on the rise, driven by factors such as rapid population growth, changing consumer dietary preferences, urbanization, and inflating disposable incomes. India is one of the largest producers of poultry meat and eggs globally, and the consumption of poultry products across the country predominantly includes chicken meat and eggs. Chicken meat is the most popular choice among the masses due to its affordability, versatility in various cuisines, and widespread availability. Eggs are also a staple food item, consumed directly and as ingredients in various food products. Besides this, the growing awareness of the health benefits of poultry is catalyzing the product demand. Also, the expansion of quick-service restaurants (QSRs) and the surging popularity of processed and convenience foods have further contributed to the demand for poultry products. Furthermore, favorable government initiatives, such as the National Livestock Mission and support for poultry farming through subsidies and loans, have played a crucial role in boosting the sector. In addition, advancements in technology and improved breeding practices have enhanced productivity and efficiency in the poultry industry. Other factors, including a large consumer base, escalating demand for protein-rich foods, and rising government support, are also propelling the growth of the market in India.

India Poultry Market Trends/Drivers:

Increase in demand for poultry products

India has a rapidly growing population, which directly translates into a larger consumer base for poultry products. With the expanding middle class and inflating disposable incomes, more people have the financial means to include poultry in their diets. Moreover, the shifting dietary patterns and preferences contribute to a higher demand for poultry. As lifestyles become more fast-paced, there is a greater inclination toward convenient and protein-rich foods. Poultry, especially chicken, is seen as a versatile, affordable, and readily available source of protein, making it a preferred choice for many consumers. Additionally, there is a growing awareness of the nutritional benefits associated with poultry consumption. This, coupled with increased awareness about the importance of a balanced diet, has catalyzed the demand for poultry products.

Rise in adoption of technology and automation

The adoption of technology and automation is a significant trend in the India poultry industry, revolutionizing the way poultry farming and operations are conducted. Poultry farms are implementing advanced farm management systems that leverage technology to streamline operations. These include automated feeding, climate control, and data monitoring tools. Technology is being employed to monitor and detect diseases in poultry farms. Systems equipped with sensors and cameras can continuously monitor bird behavior, feed intake, water consumption, and other vital signs to identify any abnormal patterns or signs, allowing prompt intervention and preventing the spread of diseases. Moreover, egg collection and processing have become more automated, reducing labor requirements and improving efficiency. Apart from this, the increasing popularity of precision farming techniques is further supporting market growth.

Poultry products, particularly chicken, are popular due to their affordability, versatility, and quick cooking time, making them a staple ingredient in food services. Furthermore, the organized food service sector in India has witnessed substantial growth in recent years. Along with this, the increasing consumer preference for eating out due to changing social dynamics, inflating disposable incomes, and a growing desire for experiential dining are contributing to the expansion of this segment. Poultry-based dishes, including chicken curries, tandoori chicken, biryanis, and sandwiches, feature prominently in the menus of Indian and international food service outlets, catering to the preferences of the dining-out culture.
