The Global Dairy Impact

Year after year, generation after generation, milk and dairy foods continue to be a trusted source of nutrition and comfort around the world. More than 80% of the world’s population, or about 6 billion people, regularly consume liquid milk or other dairy products. Dairy farming and processing are integral to national economies and individual livelihoods. There are about 133 million dairy farms globally. Over 600 million people live on dairy farms including 80 million women, around 37 million of whom head up their farms. 9% of the global milk production is traded annually.

The annual milk production obtained from all these enterprises is approximately 850 million tons. Almost all of this production is obtained from cows, buffalo, goats, sheep and camels. More than 80 percent of the total production from all species is provided only from cows. This rate constitutes almost 100 percent of production, especially in developed countries.

The Indian Dairy Market

India is the highest milk producer and ranks first position in the world contributing 24% of global milk production in the year 2021-22. The milk production of India has registered 51% increase during the last eight years i.e., during the years 2014-15 and 2021-22 and increased to 221.06 Mn tonnes in the year 2021-22. Milk production increased by 5.29% in the year 2020-21. The top 5 milk-producing states are Rajasthan (15.05%), Uttar Pradesh (14.93%), Madhya Pradesh (8.6%), Gujarat (7.56%) and Andhra Pradesh (6.97%).  They together contribute 53.11% of total Milk production in the country.

Export of dairy products recorded a growth of 19.45% as its export rose to $471 Mn in FY 2022-23 till April-December 2022 from $395 Mn in April-December 2021 of the fiscal year.

 The Indian market growth in Dairy requires the support of significant infrastructure investment across processing, chilling, logistics, cattle feed, etc. Further, lucrative untapped opportunities exist in areas such as value-added dairy products, organic/ farm fresh milk, and exports. To facilitate infrastructure growth, Central/ State Governments have released various incentives to attract investments in this sector. Animal Husbandry Infrastructure Development fund (AHIDF) is one of the flagship schemes by DAHD, Government of India whereby INR 15,000 Cr fund has been setup for offering financial support to set up new units or expand existing units in areas of dairy processing & related value addition infrastructure, meat processing & related value addition infrastructure and Animal Feed Plant.

Challenges and Opportunities 

Although the dairy sector has to deal with a number of challenges, favourable long-term consumer trends and developing technologies provide a number of opportunities as well. These challenges and opportunities are at the producer, processor and retailer levels. It then outlines some of the overarching themes presented by these challenges and opportunities, and looks at how the dairy industry as a whole needs to adapt.
