The Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) sector in India is one of the largest and most successful sector in India by many measures. The retail market in India is currently USD 600 billion and is expected to reach USD 1 Trillion by 2020. Being the world's second largest country by population with a very large youth population and a steadily rising per capita GDP, India's consumption story is on the anvil of an exponential rise in consumer spending. We have witnessed the rise of nuclear families and a rapid decline of joint families. This has a positive effect for the FMCG sector as the buyer's mindset changes dramatically and per capita consumption increases. Tier 2 & Tier 3 cities are catching up rapidly with modern trends and hence the low penetration in these rural markets can increase rapidly with the rise of disposable incomes.
The aggressive growth & expansion of organized retail chains across the country will directly benefit the sales of these FMCG companies. The market is mainly divided into 3 segments: Household & Personal Care, Food & Beverages & Healthcare products. The sector is growing at a healthy pace and growing awareness coupled with easier access to products and brand conscious consumption will propel these companies going forward. There continues to be a large scale consolidation in the industry and the strong players are expected to become stronger and grow significantly in the foreseeable future.
