Emerging Situation of the Dairy Sector in India

Based on estimates by the National Dairy Development Board (NDDB), the demand for milk is likely to reach 180 million tonnes by 2022. To supply the market, an average incremental increase of 5 million tonnes per annum over the next 15 years is required ? a doubling of the average incremental rate achieved over the past 15 years. In the absence of sufficient increased production, India will need to rely on the world market for imports.

In 2002, the Milk and Milk Products Order (MMPO) ushered in major policy changes friendly to the private sector and a momentum of activity that is likely to increase dramatically in the coming years. Large Indian and multinational corporations, such as Reliance, Pepsi and Coca-Cola, are planning significant investments. With the rising investment plans by giant companies, opportunities are beginning to expand in this sector.
