I am looking for the flower industry reports in Europe.
Thank you for submitting your question. We have many reports discussing the flower industry in Europe as a whole.
Report 1: Cut Flowers and Ornamental Plants, International Trade Centre, Apr 2012
This report discusses the market trends of cut flowers in Europe and covers the Netherlands, Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. There is also a section on the global outlook for cut flowers. There is a chart that shows the clock sales and total sales of cut flowers and houseplants in 2011.
“The flower industry is attracting new entrants despite various entry barriers such as huge capital, technical expertise, and infrastructure. Low production, ineffective cold storage systems and poor transportation has limited the competitiveness of developing countries such as India and China” (pg 21).
