- Supermarket sales will expand at a much higher rate than other retail formats. This is because greater number of
higher income Indians will prefer to shop at supermarkets because of convenience, higher standards of hygiene,
and attractive ambience.
- It is expected that fruit consumption will increase at a CAGR of 4.33% for the period spanning from 2007-2011,
highest among all the food products taken in this report.
- The processed-food market is the main focus for foreign companies as this segment is underdeveloped and
presents enormous potential for growth. The growth of modern, organized retailing — in contrast to the
kiosks and small shops from which Indians have been purchasing food traditionally — will also increase the
demand for value-added foods.
- Rising household incomes, increasing urbanization, changing lifestyles and the rapid growth of the private-sector
and dairy-processing industry should lead to greater demand for value-added, milk-based products, such as
processed cheese, table butter and ice cream.
- Rising incomes will make fish more affordable for a larger segment of the population. It is expected that the
consumption per head will increase at a CAGR of 3.45% for the forecasted period.
- The growth rate of soft drink sales will decelerate during the forecasted period due to pesticide contamination issues
and growing popularity of fruit juice drinks and bottled water.
- Coffee consumption is likely to expand at a rapid rate during the forecasted period. It is expected that it will increase
at a CAGR of 10.05% for the period spanning from 2007-2011.
