The FMCG industry in India The Indian FMCG sector is the fourth largest in the Indian economy and has a market size of $13.1 billion and represents nearly 2.5% of the country’s GDP. This industry includes the production, distribution and marketing of consumer packaged goods such as food and beverage, personal care, pharmaceuticals, plastic goods, paper and stationery and household products etc. Recruitment consultants reveal that the segment is growing at a rapid pace with well-established channels of distribution. This has given rise to cut-throat competition between the family owned small-time distributors and the organized FMCG sector.
Recruitment firms have predicted that a huge potential market for the FMCG industry exists in the middle class and the rural segments of the Indian population as this is a market waiting to be converted to branded products. Market surveys followed by recruitment agencies show that as of now rural India accounts for more than 700 mn consumers or 50% of the total population. Market analysts and recruitment companies expect FMCG companies to continue seeing growth from shoppers buying branded goods for the first time by creating an ecosystem of sales, discounts and promotions.
