    • The Indian ethnic apparel market was estimated at ₹1,418 billion for Fiscal 2020.

However, the branded ethnic apparel category is expected to grow at a higher rate of approximately 15.8% per annum between Fiscal 2022 and Fiscal 2026 driven by the increasing share of the branded segment in the overall ethnic apparel market.

    • The organic food and wellness market in India was estimated at ₹14.3 billion in Fiscal 2020 and is expected to grow at a rate of approximately 18.1% per annum to reach ₹38.7 billion by Fiscal 2026.

COVID-19 has accelerated the shift towards organic products and the focus on healthy living.

    • Expenditure on home linen, furniture, and furnishings accounted for approximately 1.7% of India’s total private final consumption expenditure and has grown at a rate of 8.3% per annum between Fiscal 2012 and Fiscal 2020. There exists significant growth headroom for the home décor market in India.
