$ 1499




The Indian sericulture market was worth INR 205 Billion in 2017. The market is further projected to reach INR 553 Billion by 2023, at a CAGR of around 18% during 2018-2023. Sericulture refers to the art of rearing silkworms for the production of silk. India is currently the world’s second largest producer of raw silk and the largest consumer of raw silk and silk fabrics.

The market for silk in India is driven by both exports and a very strong domestic demand. Fabrics made up of silk are quite popular in the domestic market during ceremonies, religious rituals, weddings, festivals, etc. Silk is used as a raw material for the manufacturing of both garments such as suites, sarees, etc. as well as in products such as curtains, bed sheets, pillow covers etc. Although silk is currently regarded as a luxury item in India with its price being significantly higher than other fabrics, we expect a continuous increase in disposable incomes to increase the consumption of silk fabrics in the country.

Market Summary:

  • Based on the segment, the market has been segregated as Mulberry and Vanya. The Vanya segment has been further segregated as Tasar, Eri and Muga. Mulberry currently represents the biggest segment.
  • Despite being the world’s second largest producer of silk, the demand of silk outpaces its supply in India. The current gap between production and demand is currently met by imports.
