Being the 4th largest in the Indian economy, the FMCG sector has grown from US$ 31.6 billion in 2011 to US$ 52.75 billion in 2017-18. It is further expected
to grow at a CAGR of around 20% by 2022. The three main segments of the sector include food and beverages which accounts for 19%, healthcare for 31%
& household and personal care for the remaining 50%.
The FMCG sector has experienced job losses, disruption of supply chains, piling up of inventory and heavy impact on lives and livelihood due to COVID-19.
However, with the gradual restart and revival in the last few months, there are signs of normalcy returning across the nation with new trends, emerging
opportunities through digital influence, increased penetration and an evolving consumer mind-set.
With this background, CII is organising the FMCG Summit themed ‘Emerging Trends in the New Normal’ on 10 – 11 December 2020 between 1500
– 1900 hrs.
Given the current scenario, the key topics of the sessions will be Consumer Buying Trends in the Offline Space; Emerging Trends in B2B; E-Commerce
to Build Brands & Use of Technology for Better Decision Making. Each of these sessions will have moderated discussions and presentations by thought
leaders from the FMCG industry on emerging trends in the new normal.
