The India Ready-To-Eat Food Market size is anticipated to register an impressive CAGR during the forecast period. The increased inclination for convenience food items among the working population, the expansion of the Indian retail chain sector, and new product introductions are some of the main growth factors for the ready-to-eat food market. However, obstacles such as growing obesity and diabetes-related health concerns could impede market expansion. Consumers who care about their health do not favor ready-to-eat foods because of their high-fat content.

The demand for Ready-To-Eat food is increasing among the working population of India owing to their busy schedule and not having enough time and resources to cook food at home. For instance, , there were over 900 million people in India who were of a working age (15–64) in 2020, making up 67% of the country's total population. By 2030, this number is projected to increase by another 100 million. According to the analysis of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), this suggests that India will account for a staggering 24.3% of the additional global workforce over the next ten years.

Demand from Sustainable Packaging is Fueling the Market Growth

In addition to the expanding demand for a range of product options and pack sizes, sustainable packaging is a crucial requirement. Growing consumer sensitivity to environment-friendly packaging is the direct cause of this factor. If the food's packaging is not recyclable, reusable, or compostable, the consumer may simply choose another brand out of pure obligation to support environmental responsibility. The fundamental criterion of RTE packages, namely, to keep the quality and flavor of the meals until the moment of consumption, cannot change or be neglected even while businesses explore this cutting-edge concept. Companies must be able to retain the economies of price per pack even with all these additional dynamic characteristics.

Product Innovation Drives the Market Growth

Nowadays, people like to experiment with their meals. They are open to trying new foods. Having said that, newer generations of customers are increasingly concerned about the quality of food and are willing to pay a little bit more if it means getting the greatest quality without sacrificing their health. With all of this in mind, Indian food producers are always working to develop new foods, and the ready-to-eat food sector is expanding significantly. For instance, Innovative Foods, which owns Sumeru, released Lasagne Paratha while Safal expanded its frozen product portfolio by introducing Frozen Okra Cut, Frozen Drumstick, and Frozen Haldi Paste Cubes. After identifying "need gaps" in the products other companies were supplying, BigBasket also entered the market with items such as frozen pizza and frozen peas under its private label Fresho.

Increasing Number of Food Delivery Application to Boost Market Growth

Many Indians are compelled to rely on ready-to-eat foods that can be ordered through smartphone applications such as Swiggy, Foodpanda, and Zomato due to their busy lifestyle. This has caused the consumption of a variety of ready-to-eat food products through these channels to increase noticeably. The consumer base of the online meal delivery industry in India is growing as a result of the country's rapid increase in smartphone usage and the accessibility of low-cost options. The sector is also being helped by the increased use of the internet due to lower data rates. The industry is expanding even further as the major players extend outside of their typical metro bases to smaller towns and cities.

Growing Startup Industry to Fuel the Market Growth

Big brands like MTR, McCain, Bikanervala, ITC, and Nestlé have been warmly accepted by consumers. This has made it possible for startup businesses to enter this market. With the increasing presence of startups in India, the startups are constantly innovating and are trying to offer new products to consumers. For instance, six beans and seven curries come in vacuum-proof bags as part of Suzu Agro's Aaj Pakao brand of RTC goods. They also serve Pav Bhaji, Mangalorean Ghee Roast, Goan Xacuti Gravy, Dal Makhni, Missal, and Chettinad Gravy.
