POULTRY TECH EXPO-2018
India's poultry industry has transformed from a mere backyard activity into a major commercial activity in just four decades. India is now the world's 4th largest egg producer and the 5thlargest producer of broilers.
The Indian poultry market witnessed an increasing trend over the past five years, growing at a CAGR of 11.39%
Poultry Meat Segment:
During 2010-2018, present urban market accounts for about 80% of demand of poultry meat. In India, the production and consumption of broiler meat has been witnessing a stagnated growth over the years. India’s per capita consumption of the poultry meat is estimated at around 3.1kg/year, which is low compared to the world average of around 17 kg per year.
Processed chicken meat constitutes about 5%-10% of the total chicken meat production, but according to the estimates, demand for processed chicken meat is growing between 15-20% per year. This creates a demand supply gap that needs to be addressed by the industry by investing in processed poultry meat plants.
The egg production in India increased to 92.63 billion in 2018 from 66.50 billion in 2011, increasing at a CAGR of 5.68%. The domestic demand for the eggs is expected to drive the market in long term as a 4%-5% increase in demand, annually for eggs is expected. The per capita availability of egg has increased from 61 in 2013-14 to 66 in 2015-16. In 2016-17 it is 69.
Egg production is also expanding in the states of West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Chhattisgarh, which contribute about 80% of the market share. Other layer breeds include Lohman, Bovans and Hyline. The layer birds are mainly concentrated in the states of Andhra Pradesh, Tamilnadu, Maharashtra and Punjab. A common observation is that the eggs sold in India are mostly in bulk quantities without branding in most cases.
The Government of Uttar Pradesh has achieved remarkable progress in the poultry sector, especially, broiler production, but as far as the layer farming & hatchery is concerned, the state has to go a very long way. Broiler production also limited to small and medium units. The Government of Uttar Pradesh is in its bid to develop the poultry sector is promoting entrepreneurship development which will further enhance its growth and foster gainful employment in the rural sector
In this context Centre for Agriculture along with Department of Animal Husbandry, Govt. of Uttar Pradesh would be organizing a three day Poultrytech Expo-2018 with the support of National Bureau of Fish Genetic Resources at National Bureau of Fish Genetic Resources, Telibagh, Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh from December 11 to 13, 2018.
