ICRA: Indian dairy industry to grow by 9-11% in FY2022

Published on: 1:56 pm

  • Domestic milk production is estimated to increase by 5-6% in FY2022, supported by a normal monsoon and early onset of the flush season in some regions. Post the moderate impact of pandemic, the industry witnessed steady recovery in consumption across end-segments. This was further aided by improving pace of vaccination, fall in fresh Covid-19 cases, revival in economic activities; and demand from institutional and HoReCa segments which too has recovered sharply.

With stable milk procurement and lower demand amidst pandemic during FY2021, industry players converted excess liquid milk to skimmed milk powder (SMP) thus resulting in elevated inventory levels and subdued SMP prices. The same is expected to be liquidated in the current year supported by revival in demand, ICRA said in the note. Read more
