INDIAN DAIRY INDUSTRY

Dairy is a vital part of the global food system , providing economic, nutritional and social benefits to a large proportion of the world`s population. With up to one billion people living on dairy farms, dairying plays a major role within the economics of numerous communities, regions and countries across the globe. The Indian dairy sector is estimated to be worth Rs.3.6 lakh crore, according to the Department of Animal Husbandry, Dairy & Fisheries, Ministry of Agriculture , Govt. of India. Indian Dairy sector has grown substantially over the years. As a result India ranks first among the world`s milk producing nations, achieving an annual output of 132.4 millions of milk during 2012-13.

The production is during 2013-14 was 139 million tons over previous year. Dairy products demand in India has increased dramatically in both rural and urban sectors. However, as a larger population is migrating from rural areas to cities. Thus creating greater demand for dairy products. Indian policy makers and planners always believed that Indian dairy industry has huge untapped potential as it has the largest animal herd in the world. India produces around 17 percent of world`s total milk production from more than 300 million cattle.

The 14 major milk producing States of Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Gujarat, Haryana, Karnataka, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Odisha, Punjab, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal accounted for over 90 percent of country`s milk production, having 87 percent of breedable cattle and buffalo population with 98 percent of the fodder resources. A new study reports that the demand for milk in India will rise by a compound annual growth rate of about 4% over the next few years. Organized retail selling of value-added dairy products and the food service management has helped the sector grow. Thus, the growth of food and coffee chains such as Café coffee Day, Pizza Hut, Dominos, KFC and McDonald`s are expected to help increase the consumption of value-added dairy products. In the short run, India`s dairy sector is well positioned to accommodate the rapid growth in dairy product consumption. An increasingly urbanized population with a greater income will drive demand
