The state of the meat market in India

The indicators of the meat market in 2020 went into a positive trend. Thus, the production of cattle meat, pork, lamb, horse meat and venison in India increased by 10,5% in 2020 and amounted to more than 3000 thousand tons. During 2017-2020, the cattle meat market showed a positive production trend, but in 2019 the growth rate slowed down slightly and the average annual increase was only 3,5%.

Market Dynamics

Looking at producer price indices, we can say that all the same, the consequences of the unstable economic situation in the country and the world against the backdrop of a developing pandemic still take place. So in 2020, the producer price index stopped at 112,8%, indicating a significant increase in prices, however, the highest index in the study period was achieved in 2018 and amounted to 118,3%.
