India's poultry consumption is expected to grow 30% by 2014-2015, making the country a net poultry importer by that time, according to Research and Markets' "India Agribusiness Report Q2 2011."


A growing middle class and rising incomes will lead to 34.4 million metric tons of poultry consumed by 2015, according to the report. Connected to this growth, corn consumption is also expected to increase by 30% by 2014-2015, driven by the increase in animal feed demand.
