Market size of food and beverages industry in India 2015-2020 Economic growth in a country directly or indirectly results in a significant improvement in its food supply. The food and beverage industry in India constituted about 40 percent of its consumer-packaged goods industry. The market size of the food and beverages industry across the nation was estimated to be around 46 billion U.S. dollars in 2020. The food sector is poised for further growth, with the aim to achieve a bigger contribution to the world food trade every year. The sixth largest food and grocery market in the world is witnessing exponential growth, with online delivery players like Swiggy, Zomato, FoodPanda among others setting up partnerships across the country. The size of the online food delivery market in the country was 300 million U.S. dollars in 2016.
The food

Baked goods, convenience food, confectionaries and dairy make up the packaged food segment. Biscuits are arguably the soul food of citizens, where ‘chai pe charcha’ (conversations over cups of tea) is an essential evening routine. The packed organic food and beverages sector had a market size of over 500 million Indian rupees in 2016. Private equity investments also increased significantly in the industry in 2016 and 2017.

The beverages

Tea is the most common beverage in the northern parts, while in the south, the affection towards a hot beverage is shared between tea and coffee equally. Fruit juices and soft drinks are the commonly consumed non-alcoholic beverages throughout the nation. Adherence to safety measures and quality food supply accompanied by strong global competition is likely to keep the industry’s plate full and stir it towards future expansion.
