India Barley Malt Market is Likely to Foster the Growth of the Malt Ingredient Market

India, being the largest whiskey market consumes thousands of tons of barley malt for the production of distilled spirits. In such a scenario, a regulation in the prices of malt ingredients is expected to foster the growth of the market in the near future. India is looking to import one million tonnes of Australian barley every year, which is expected to meet the rising demand, and result in an alcohol price drop in the country. Beer, whiskey and flavored alcoholic beverages are being benefitted through the trade deal as the reduction in the production cost will ultimately increase the revenue. On average, imported barley from countries other than Australia costs around INR 1,950-2,000 per quintal, while the Indian variety costs INR 1,875-1,900 per quintal. Thus, Australian malt barley is expected to perfectly cope up with the shortfall in supply to domestic breweries due to low domestic production.
