INDUSTRY SCENARIO

Dairy Industry in India

India is the largest producer and consumer of dairy products in the world. It produces 22 % of the total global dairy production. The dairy industry is an essential part of the rural economy and is one of the major sources of employment and income for the rural population.

According to a report by IMARC, the dairy industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of 14.98 % between FY2022- 2027. Majority of the dairy produced in India is consumed domestically, most of which is liquid milk. As per a report by CRISIL, revenue from the organised dairy sector will rebound by 12 % in FY 2022 compared to the growth of approximately 1 % in FY 2020-21. The growth would be largely due to the pick-up in demand of value added products (VAP), steady sales of liquid milk and rising retail rates in the year. Operating profitability is expected to reach its pre-pandemic levels as a result of high packaging and transport costs and high raw milk prices.

Government Initiatives

The Government of India has implemented the Rashtriya Gokul Mission from FY 2021-22 to improve productivity and enhance milk production. These schemes aim to improve remuneration for farmers. An allocation of Rs. 2400 crore has been made over the next five years. Many new technologies have been made available to the farmers under these schemes which focus on promoting private entrepreneurship to enhance affordability and increase access. With efficient implementation, it is expected that 8 crore farmers involved in the dairy industry will benefit directly as a result of the increased milk production, which is expected to increase from 198.4 million metric tonnes in FY 2019-20 to 300 million metric tonnes in FY 2024-25.

B. Opportunities

Increasing Health Awareness - As an after effect of Covid people are opting more for nutrient-rich and immunity-boosting foods.

Participation of start-ups in the dairy industry- It will support significant infrastructure investment across processing, chilling, logistics, cattle feed etc.

Rising Income levels - With income levels rising, the spending on dairy and value-added products has been on the rise. Affordable innovation would help people buy more of the products from the Company.

Demand for premium products - As income levels rise and lifestyles change, consumers are demanding products with innovation and benefits. This provides an opportunity for the food and dairy companies to innovate and launch products that will attract the consumers to the Company. COVID-19 converted "out of home consumption" trend into "order online". As the consumer intent to shop online continues to increase, it will create more opportunities for the value added dairy product category.

2. Lack of awareness among the farmers and dairy farms not being in the best of the conditions

3. Extensive cross-breeding for raising milk productivity may lead to disappearance of indigenous cattle
