Size of the Indian FMCG industry

  • As of 2020, the Indian FMCG sector was worth around ₹9,108 crore.
  • The market size of the Indian FMCG sector is expected to reach ₹18,222 crore by 2025.

FMCG industry growth prospects

  • The FMCG sector’s revenue in India is expected to grow by 7-9% in FY2022-23.
  • e-commerce, shifting economic power, growing younger population and middle class, and demographic transitions are expected to be the key growth drivers for this sector.

GCPL growth prospects

  • In July 2022, GCPL announced its plan to implement a new approach for brand equity and product innovation for its several items.
  • The company intends to achieve double-digit revenue growth through this plan in the next few years.
  • GCPL plans to employ automation and digital technology to become leaner, more empowered and more agile.

Risks and concerns

  • The evolving marketing strategies make it difficult for FMCG organisations to meet changing customer demands.
  • High inflation and growing input costs are two of the biggest problems the sector is now facing. In the post-covid era, where supply chain disruptions and ineffective production led to a sharp increase in pricing, this has become a particularly pressing issue.
  • The high cost of FMCG goods reduces demand because consumers can no longer afford them.
  • Businesses use other tactics, such as 'shrinkflation', a popular ploy to decrease weight while maintaining the pack size and price, particularly in the smaller price ranges where price changes are obvious to the consumer.
  • The consumer demand for FMCG products may not increase significantly in the upcoming years as the global economy continues to struggle, people's earnings stay flat, and the job market continues to perform poorly.
