What Changes Egg Rate In India?

India is one of the largest (3rd) egg Egg producing countries in the world. It is the 17th largest egg exporter in the world.

Egg rates keep on changing every now and then. There are many reasons behind this fluctuations and they are listed below;

    1. The poultry birds are very vulnerable to diseases like Bird flu. These diseases kill lakhs of birds every month and it has a deep impact on the overall poultry industry.
    2. Fluctuations in the costs of the feed and other materials required at the poultry farms.
    3. Variations in the temperature and other climatic conditions in the length and breadth of India. Egg Rate Seasonal Indices show hike in the month of November and December, suggesting that the demand, and hence the rate of eggs increases during winter in India. In December 2022, inflation in egg prices was recorded at 6.91%.
    4. Generally with the onset of summer season, the demand for eggs in India falls, and it leads to the fall in egg rate in India. However, if the heat period prolongs, the birds usually die, and the supply of eggs falls. This fall leads to the increased rate of eggs in India.
    5. India is exporting its eggs to various countries like Oman, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Kuwait, and this directly enhances the demand of eggs in the market. It leads to the increase in egg rate in India. In 2020, eggs were the 629th most exported products in India.
    6. Pandemic also had a very huge negative impact on the egg rate in India.
Clearly, it is not a single factor that affects the egg rates in India. It is an interplay of all the above factors that decides the prices. 
In India, there is a committee called National Egg Coordination Committee (NECC), that decides the egg rates while taking all the above factors into consideration. It changes the prices almost on daily basis and it is from there that the concept of “NECC Egg Rate Today” takes birth.
