Competitive Landscape

The global dairy sector is highly competitive due to major local and international brands’ presence. The level of competition, production shares, the yearly average compound growth rate of milk production, the cost of milk production, and trends in the level of competition in milk production have all been looked at in the global milk market. The industrialized world has the highest cost of milk producers due to relatively high milk prices and direct government backing.

India mostly uses a smallholder production strategy for its dairy farming. Indian farmers often have a herd of two to three dairy species (cows and buffalo). More than 40% of agricultural households in India produce milk since it is a livestock business they can start up relatively easily to increase their income. India's dairy industry is expanding at a demand-driven, inclusive, and poor-friendly rate.

Large, specialized commercial farms are the norm for dairy farms in Europe. The milk producers' organizations make use of their collective bargaining strength, and contracts and business connections in the supply chain are highly developed. In India, the production, processing, and distribution of milk are still dominated by the unorganized sector. Dairy markets are typically fragmented, traditional, and unorganized. Manufacturers are likely to have opportunities in developing regions for organized dairy sector growth in the forecast period.
