With Indian consumers slowly moving from carbonated soft drinks to healthier options, flavoured milk represents one of the fastest growing segments in the Indian dairy market. Research firm IMARC Group expects this market to grow at a CAGR of around 21% during 2012-2016, according to its latest report titled “Indian Dairy Market Report & Forecast: 2012-2016”. According to an analyst at IMARC Group,“The flavoured milk segment comes into the ready to drink beverage class. With increasing urbanization and sedentary lifestyles, the ready to drink flavoured milk segment represents a very convenient option for the Indian middle class where there are no hassles to boil, add external ingredients or serve this milk. Moreover, the advent of single-serve, resealable plastic bottles or tetra packs have made this category of milk more convenient for consumers to drink and easier for distributors to ship”.
Apart from the convenience factor, the flavoured milk category is also driven by an increasing trend of Indian consumers shifting towards the health and wellness segment. The flavoured milk segment is one that is driven by the well-to-do income class, where consumers are shifting from carbonated drinks to natural and nutritious drinks such as juices and dairy products. Driven by this trend, manufacturers of flavoured drinks are continuously innovating their products in such a way so that they appeal to consumers both in terms of nutritious value as well as taste.
