Manufacturing Industry in India & Abroad

India's fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) industry has been growing rapidly in recent years, driven by rising disposable incomes, a growing middle class, and increasing urbanization. In 2021, the FMCG sector in India was valued at around US$50 billion, and it is expected to continue growing in the coming years, with a projected compound annual growth rate of around 20% by 2025.  

As incomes rise in India, consumers are more likely to spend on non-essential goods and services, including FMCG products. India's middle class is expected to reach around 547 million people by 2023, significantly boosting the FMCG sector. 

As more and more people move to urban areas, the demand for FMCG products is likely to increase as these products are more readily available in urban areas. The Indian government has implemented various initiatives to support the growth of the FMCG sector, such as the 'Make in India' campaign, which aims to boost domestic manufacturing and increase exports.

Market Size

According to a report by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), the FMCG sector in India was expected to reach a value of around US$103 billion by 2020, up from US$49.5 billion in 2015. According to a report by Euromonitor International, the global FMCG industry was valued at around US$11.2 trillion in 2020.

The Asia-Pacific region is the largest market for FMCG products, accounting for around 40% of global sales. China is the largest market in the region, followed by India and Indonesia.

The global FMCG industry is highly competitive, with many companies operating in the market. A few large multinational corporations dominate the industry, but there is also a significant presence of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

A report by KPMG projects that the FMCG sector in India will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of around 17% between 2016 and 2021. The FMCG sector accounts for around 2.5% of India's gross domestic product (GDP) and is one of the largest sectors in the country in terms of production, consumption, and export. The FMCG sector is highly diverse, with a wide range of products, including personal care, food and beverages, home care, and health and wellness products. 

A few large multinational companies dominate the FMCG industry, but there is also a significant presence of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Overall, the FMCG industry is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years, driven by rising incomes, a growing middle class, and increasing urbanization.


Transforming FMCG with Innovative Mobile App Development

Stay competitive in the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) industry with the latest advancements in mobile app development. At Nichetech, we specialize in creating robust, user-friendly, and feature-rich FMCG apps that cater to the dynamic needs of businesses and consumers.

1. Hyper-personalization and Data-driven Engagement:

  • Leveraging Purchase History: FMCG apps are using purchase data to personalize product recommendations, suggest recipes based on user preferences, and offer targeted promotions for relevant items.

  • Location-based Marketing with Geofencing: Apps can leverage geofencing to send targeted notifications when users are near stores, promoting specific products or highlighting ongoing in-store promotions.

  • AI-powered Product Discovery and Content Curation: AI algorithms personalize product discovery journeys by recommending items based on past purchases, dietary preferences, and trending products within user demographics.

2. Focus on Sustainability and Transparency:

  • Sustainable Packaging and Ethical Sourcing Information: Apps are becoming a platform to showcase a brand's commitment to sustainability. Users can access information about eco-friendly packaging initiatives, ethical sourcing practices, and the company's environmental footprint.

  • Food Waste Reduction Features: Apps are integrating features that promote food waste reduction, such as offering recipes for using leftover ingredients, suggesting portion control tips, or connecting users with discounted expiring food items near them.

  • Carbon Footprint Tracking and Offset Programs: Some FMCG apps are allowing users to track the estimated carbon footprint associated with specific products, potentially offering options to offset emissions through company-supported sustainable projects.

3. Augmented Reality (AR) for Enhanced Customer Experiences:

  • Virtual Product Trials and Shelf Visualization: AR technology can enable virtual try-on experiences for cosmetics or household products. Additionally, AR can display product placement on shelves in a user's home, helping them visualize scale and fit before purchase.

  • Interactive Recipes and Cooking Assistance: AR can provide step-by-step recipe instructions overlaid on real-world views, guiding users through the cooking process.

  • Engaging Educational Content with AR: AR experiences can showcase product features, ingredients, or manufacturing processes, offering educational and interactive content for consumers.

4. Building Brand Communities and Social Advocacy:

  • User-generated Content and Recipe Sharing Features: Apps can encourage user-generated content by allowing users to share photos, recipe variations, or cooking experiences, fostering a sense of community and brand loyalty.

  • Social Responsibility Initiatives and Cause Marketing: Apps can become platforms for promoting the brand's social responsibility efforts, allowing users to contribute to charitable causes supported by the company.

  • Gamification and Loyalty Programs with Social Impact: Loyalty programs can be gamified, incentivizing users to complete challenges or earn points that contribute to social causes, promoting brand advocacy and positive social impact.

5. Integration with Smart Homes and Voice Assistants:

  • Voice-activated Shopping Lists and Order Placement: FMCG apps can integrate with voice assistants like Alexa or Google Assistant, allowing users to add items to their shopping list or place orders using voice commands.

  • Smart Refrigerator Integration and Automatic Replenishment: Apps can connect with smart refrigerators to monitor stock levels and automatically trigger reorders for frequently used items.

  • Recipe Integration with Smart Cooking Appliances: Some apps can connect with smart ovens or kitchen appliances, allowing users to download and send cooking instructions directly to the device.
