Regional Outlook Analysis: Floriculture Market

Diverse agro-climatic conditions in Asia-Pacific is a key factor responsible to the growth of commercial floriculture in the region—expanding at a robust CAGR through the period of 2019. In addition to local demands, favorable climatic conditions puts Asia-Pacific in a relatively advantageous position to export floricultural products to major flower markets worldwide. For instance, member countries of Asian Productivity Organization (APO) are increasingly making efforts to cater for the domestic and overseas markets as critical issues relating to perishability, seasonality, market volatility, and quality sensitivity remain. Strategies are majorly focused towards efficient postharvest management to ensure top quality floriculture products in the international market. Japan, the largest consumer and producer of potted plants and flowers in Asia-Pacific, has developed an efficient market chain. Moreover, a notable quantity of special floriculture products like Bonsai (China/Japan) and Orchids (Thailand) is exported to Europe.

  • Opportunity Analysis: The floriculture market in emerging nations remain underdeveloped considering lack of standard regulations to streamline floriculture trade—with supply chain network issues being the most important opportunity pocket. Developing efficient logistics networks in emerging networks is the need of the hour to reduce and eliminate immediate loss or damage of the floriculture products. Implementation of regulatory norms to enable a systemic organization is a must for the growth of the floriculture market in developing markets.

The floriculture market in Europe is another high revenue generating region, demonstrating sustained growth in recent years, predominantly attributed to growing demand for cut flowers in France and Germany, amongst other European Union Nations. Moreover, Netherlands is projected to remain a leading exporter of bulbs and cut flowers.
