A fast growing economy and robust demographics provide a positive outlook to the consumer businesses in India.

The retail market in India is expected to grow to USD 1.2 trillion by 2021 from USD 795 billion in 2017, it said.

“Further, as the internet penetration in the country increases and more international retailers start operating in India, the share of organised retail market is expected to increase from 12 per cent in 2017 to 22-25 per cent by 2021.

“This will also be driven by the growth of e-commerce market from USD 24 billion in 2017 to USD 84 billion in 2021,” the report said.
