NEW DELHI, DELHI, INDIA, December 19, 2020 / – According to the IMARC Group report, the Indian flower industry was worth 188.7 billion INR in 2019 and is expected to grow with good prospects for the periods 2020 -25. The demand for flowers in Indian culture dates back to ancient times. Many traditional rituals and large gatherings involve a different variety of flowers. The commercial flower industry has recently grown with many prominent players entering online segments.

The flower industry in India is diverse and growing
India has a diverse range of climatic conditions and topography ranging from high mountains in the north to the Deccan highlands in the south. These various agro-climatic conditions are suitable for the cultivation of different types of flowers.

Another important factor for the flower industry in India is the availability of a skilled workforce as well as a large fertile soil. A survey by Send Flowers to Noida indicates that the demand for flowers in metropolitan cities has increased and will continue to increase in the times to come due to high demand.

The Indian government encourages new entrepreneurs in floriculture to expand their businesses. The horticulture departments of various states also help florists grow new varieties of flowers as well as native varieties. The Indian government has recognized floriculture as a booming market and granted it 100% export-oriented status. Commercial agriculture gains a significant share of exports. The new seed policy has made it easier for farmers to import planting material that meets international standards. The floriculture industry in India is shifting from traditional flowers to cut flowers. Countries like the Netherlands, Germany, the United States, the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates are emerging as major importers of Indian flowers.

ICAR-Directorate of Floricultural Research (DFR) is an institute under the Indian Agricultural Research Council (ICAR) to promote and strengthen floricultural research and improve the technological base of floriculture. The Agricultural and Processed Food Export Development Authority (APEDA) is the nodal agency for export promotion and growth of floriculture in India.
