  • India is one of the important suppliers of handicrafts to the world market. The Indian handicrafts industry is highly labour intensive cottage based industry and decentralized, being spread all over the country in rural and urban areas. 
  • EU member states and Asian countries, China and India in particular, are major suppliers of giftware and handicrafts to the German market.
  • Handicraft Industry has been globally considered, as the rich heritage of India. This is why Indian Handicraft is in huge demand all over the world due to its unique appeal and craftsmanship. Indian Handicrafts are available in brass, metal, wood, stone, beads, such as Paintings, Notebooks & Albums, Marble Inlay Work, Furnishing, Sculpture, Artificial Jewelry and other handicraft products.
  • The wooden handicrafts industry plays an important role in the Indian economy. This industry requires low capital investment and other resources. The wooden handicraft sector provides a high ratio of value addition, and has emerged as one of the major sources of foreign exchange earnings for India.
  • Carpet weaving industry is the largest export oriented craft industry from India. Not only there is a great demand for costly silk carpets from Kashmir, which has become the status symbol in traditional Indian homes, but there is also demand for woolen and non-woolen carpets.
  • The demand for decorative items such as traditional wall hangings, silver cutlery, brass pots, embellished wooden sculptures, marble and wood inlay work, silk carpets, wrought iron furniture and decorative pieces, traditional paintings, enameled furniture, stone and wood carvings, metal, wood and stone sculptures etc. is also on the rise in India and abroad. 
  • The world market for handicrafts is in a state of transition. The growing influx of look-alike, low-cost, fully or partly mechanized crafts and decorative products from countries such as China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan, has penetrated and thereby affected the market for traditional hand crafted products.
  • In the world market for crafts and decorative items, the top fifteen importers including countries like USA, Germany, United Kingdom, Japan and Hong Kong account for approximately 86% of the world imports.
  • USA is the largest importer of leather goods especially the lower to mid-market category being imported in large volumes from countries like China, Hong Kong and other developing Asian countries were as relatively lesser volumes of high-end leather goods being imported from countries like Italy, France and other eastern European countries.
