INDUSTRY STRUCTURE AND DEVELOPMENTS

The Indian Dairy industry is at the cusp of another revolution, moving towards increased contribution from various value-added milk products. India, in its quest to become a matured dairy industry, is aggressively transitioning from unorganized to more of an organized and branded market. These two structural shifts from unorganised to organized market and from traditional products to value-added dairy products will provide long-term growth visibility to the organized dairy sector.

The demand for value-added products will be driven by changes in macro-economic factors like increase in urbanization, nuclear families, increasing number of dual income households with working women and improved per capita spending.

SEGMENT WISE OR PRODUCT-WISE PERFORMANCE

Your company is mainly engaged in the business of trading of dairy products such as milk, skimmed milk powder, ghee, butter, cheese etc. which are under one broad segment of the market, so segment reporting is not applicable to it.

OUTLOOK

Multiple vaccine approvals and the launch of vaccination in some countries since December 2020 have raised hopes of an eventual end to the pandemic and have boosted investor sentiments worldwide. Emerging market and developing economies are expected to track diverging recovery paths as it would largely hinge on the speed of vaccination, effectiveness of policy support and country-specific structural factors. Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), in its interim economic assessment, stated that economic activities in China, India and Turkey have moved above pre-pandemic levels led by strong fiscal and quasi-fiscal measures and a recovery in manufacturing and construction. However, renewed waves and new variants of the virus pose concerns to the outlook.

OPPORTUNITIES AND THREATS

The long-term outlook of Indian dairy sector is favourable on account of increasing population, increase in per capita consumption, increase in expenditure on package food, brand awareness, urbanization & increase in nuclear families and government support. The growth would be primarily driven by increase in the demand for value-added milk products, which is also margin improver for the players. Anticipating and responding to the changing consumer preferences in a timely manner helps building a strong consumer demand for the brand.

RISKS AND CONCERNS

Climate change and scarcity of water are the major threats to the dairy industry. A drought or a rainfall deficit results in increased cost of cattle feed and reduced availability of green fodder for cattle thereby constraining milk supply. Such adverse weather and seasonal conditions may lead to a decline in supply and a spike in raw milk prices.
