 The Consumer Market in India – Opportunities for Foreign Companies



With a population of around 1.4 billion, India has one of the largest growing consumer markets in the world. Positive changes in areas such as urbanisation, demographic profiles, and disposable incomes, are leading to an increase in consumer spending.  

Consumer spending in India is expected to witness significant growth over 2023, with household spending expected to grow by 7.1% y-o-y. In the long run, overall consumption, which currently accounts for around 60% of the GDP, is expected to more than double from US$2 trillion in 2022 to US$4.9 trillion by the end of the decade.

To take advantage of India’s positive attributes, companies must understand the unique challenges in the country, such as the urban-rural split, diversity in demand, regional differences, adoption of technology, key sales channels, as well as consumer preferences and spending patterns across the different socio-economic groups, to implement a successful market entry strategy.
