India - The Future of Foodservice to 2020

Indian economy has experienced strong GDP growth since 2010. In 2015, it grew by 7% on a per capita basis. Consumer prices also rose, and at a higher rate than in developed countries. Economic growth has been characterized by rapid urbanization and a growing middle class. Consumer’s growing spending power is driving growth for foodservice operators.

Profit sector in India is set to experience acceleration in sales value growth up to a CAGR of 10.5% to 2020. This will be primarily driven by an increase in transaction numbers (CAGR of 5.3%), with outlet numbers growing by 1.7%. Whilst this is obviously a positive sign for the market and stakeholders in India, operators will face increasing operational pressure to cater for a larger number of consumers with a slower-growing number of outlets.

QSR channel in India grew at a CAGR of 6.2% between 2013 and 2015; this pace of expansion is forecast to increase to a CAGR of 9.0% between 2015 and 2020. Rapid urbanization, increasing levels of disposable income, and the growing influence of Westernization are expected to drive healthy performance for this channel.

FSR channel experienced the second strongest sales value growth in the foodservice profit sector since 2013, with revenue rising at CAGR of 11.5% between 2013 and 2015. This growth is forecast to accelerate to 2020, driven by rapid urbanization and rising levels of disposable incomes.

Coffee and tea shop channel has experienced strong historic sales value growth over recent years, with revenue rising a CAGR of 8.1% from 2013-2015. This growth is expected to accelerate to 2020, with a forecast CAGR of 8.8%, fuelled primarily by an increase in average transaction prices and growing transaction numbers. Outlet growth is however expected to contract marginally.

Looking forward, pubs, clubs and bars will benefit from India’s strong economic growth, rapid urbanization and upwardly mobile urban youth, as rising numbers of consumers find themselves able to afford the channels’ higher transaction prices on a more regular basis. Factors such as ‘exclusivity’ and ‘vibrant atmosphere’ will strongly appeal to India’s young working consumers looking to spend their rising disposable incomes in more experiential channels.

- The trend towards “ultra convenience” among young, tech-savvy and increasingly time-pressed urban consumers, along with advancements in mobile technology and the growing prevalence of online ordering sites (Zomato, Swiggy, FoodPanda, Grofers) will drive exceptionally strong revenue growth in India’s takeaway market to 2020, far outpacing growth from dine-in.
- Indian consumers value the availability of varied flavors and cuisines. The success of home-grown Goli Vada Pav and multinational chains’ ongoing efforts to customize menus to match regional tastes and cuisines however indicate a lasting popularity of local delicacies, especially when made available in a convenient, on-the-go format.
- The foodservice market in India is highly fragmented, with independents generating the vast majority of revenue. Chains will however grow at a faster rate to 2020, partially through incoporating elements of localism and authenticity that are traditionally perceived as the cornerstone of independents’ offerings.
