Indian market scenario

This increase in domestic markets could be attributed to Eid, Hindu’s new year, Navratras and finally Ram Navami. The last lag of marriages in north India is also responsible for this increase.
Indian exported around Rs 50 Crores or USD 6 Millions worth of Powders and cheese and around Rs 230 crores or  USD 29 Million worth of Butter fat in March which is the  last month of financial year FY24.
The global situation is not very promising in near future from the prices of SMP and WMP perspective. However weather forecast of heat wave in India till June and above normal monsoon from July onwards can be seen as a good news from both consumption of existing huge stocks of dairy commodities till June and promising milk production later . July – August will be the period under watch where in both at domestic levels and global levels the commodities prices may show some fireworks.
