Religion refers to a set of socio-cultural practices and moral beliefs shared by a group or community. It is an organized belief system that is bound by the worship of a single or multiple supernatural forces. In India, commonly practiced religion includes Hinduism, Sikhism, Buddhism, Islam and others, which form a medium for seeking peace and solace in life. They are conveyed through the mediums of texts, revelations, prayers, meditation, feasts, rituals, sermons, beliefs, morals, prophecies, symbols, and worship of deities. Besides this, spirituality involves recognizing the feeling of connection or belief in the existence of an individual to achieve a positive state of mind with contentment, gratitude and acceptance. As a result, various religious and spiritual products are used across India, including candles and incense sticks, books and literature tools, statues of deities, stones, and crystals.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report. 

India Religious and Spiritual Market Trends: 

The market is primarily driven by the increasing popularity of pilgrimage trips to religious destinations across India. For instance, Haridwar, Ajmer, Amritsar, and Varanasi are some religious places facilitating pilgrimage tourism. In addition to this, the Government of India is taking initiatives to launch projects such as pilgrimage rejuvenation and spirituality, heritage augmentation drive (PRASHAD), and heritage city development and augmentation yojana. These programs aim to promote infrastructural development at various sites and enhance convenience for tourists and pilgrims. They are also developing infrastructures, such as effective railways, roads, and water transport systems, network connectivity, information centers, drinking water, and renewable power, for the enhanced convenience of tourists and pilgrims. Moreover, the increasing adoption of incense-based products for religious, spiritual and meditational purposes is also accelerating the product demand. Furthermore, the increasing adoption of smartphones and the integration of virtual reality (VR) kiosks is offering an interactive and immersive experience to the devotees, which in turn is significantly impacting the market growth.
