Food Processing Market in India 2020


SKU: 898 Category: Tag:


India’s diverse agro-climatic conditions, which favors the production of food ingredients in bulk, and availability of promising infrastructure – these are the two primary factors that aided the Indian food processing industry to become the fifth largest in the world. Currently, the food processing industry in India accounts for ~32% of India’s food market, and ~11.60% share of employment in the domestic food industry. Further, the industry accounts for ~2.2% of the total FDI inflows in India. Although the unorganized sector dominates the industry, the organized sector is expected to develop during the forecast period (FY 2020-FY 2024).

Market insights:
The food processing market in India was valued at INR 25,691.30 Bn in FY 2018 and is expected to reach INR 53,435.52 Bn by FY 2024, expanding at a CAGR of ~12.09% during the FY 2020-FY 2024 period. The industry experiences a conducive growth environment in terms of availability of raw materials, which is evident from the fact that the Indian food and beverage industry witnessed revenue growth of ~13.41% during the 2015-2019 period. Further, increase in the per capita income and rise in the living standards of people are propelling the growth of the food processing market in India. On the other hand, there is a lack of storage infrastructure faced by the industry (hygienic cold chains, well-established distribution system and transportation networks), which is impeding the growth of the industry in India.

The food processing industry in India can be segmented into dairy processing, fruits and vegetables processing, fish processing, meat and poultry processing, and other segments like grains and spices processing.
