|The Indian Dairy Industry|
|Opportunities and Challenges, 2017|
Of the Indian Dairy Industry, 80% remains unorganized even today, indicating the potential that can be tapped by Dairy Companies. Valued at INR 5,000 billion in 2016, 60% of the market comprises liquid and powdered milk, while value added products such as butter, ghee and curd comprise the remainder. Highly premiumized products such as branded yogurt, probiotic dahi, specialty cheeses etc., account for only 5% of the revenue; they nevertheless, hold the maximum margin potential for dairy industry companies and tend to be the focal point for private MNCs like Nestle and Danone.
