OVERVIEW OF FMCG SECTOR
IN INDIA
The Indian FMCG sector is the fourth largest sector
in the economy with a total market size in excess
of US$ 13.1 billion. It has a strong MNC presence
and is characterised by a well-established
distribution network, intense competition
between the organised and unorganised
segments and low operational cost. Availability of
key raw materials, cheaper labour costs and
presence across the entire value chain gives India
a competitive advantage.

THE SIZE OF RURAL MARKET
India is one of the largest economies in the world in
terms of purchasing power and has a strong
middle class base of 300 million. Around 70 per
cent of the total households in India (188 million)
resides in the rural areas. The total number of
rural households are expected to rise from 135
million in 2001-02 to 153 million in 2009-10. This
presents the largest potential market in the
world. The annual size of the rural FMCG market
was estimated at around US$ 10.5 billion in 2001-
02. With growing incomes at both the rural and
the urban level, the market potential is expected
to expand further. Vikas Misar 3

RECOMMENDATIONS

grooming needs of our target consumers with safe,
efficacious, natural solutions by synthesizing the deep
knowledge of ayurveda and herbs with modern science.
• Provide consumers with innovative products within easy
reach.
• Position Dabur Chyawanprash as not more of a medicine
but as something which is necessary for health.

visibility. It is an initiative to occupy shelf space.

CONCLUSIONS
The Chyawanprash Industry is yet to capture the beverage
market in full swing. The consumer’s patriotic love for tea
and coffee is unfared. Chyawanprash are yet to establish
their supplement use in the average household here in
lies the great opportunities. Within the market, it is safe
to conclude that dabur has hit off ratherwell with the
masses. Dabur has clearly lost it head start advantage
and thereby acquiring just 35% of the market share while
others enjoys rest of the market share. This could be well
attributed to dabor successful ATA (Availability, Taste and
Affordability) marketing module, the attributes most
rated by the consumers. Lack of publicity has hampered
the growth progress of the brand so aggressive
advertising is needed to promote Chyawanprash.The
brands such as that of Chyawanprash by vednath,
Chyawanprash with its ‘sonacahndi, ‘Minute- made’ and
also US food giantssDel Monte are ready to hit the
Chyawanprash market very soon.
