The Indian visual and applied arts market was estimated at around INR14.6 billion in 2017. Growing recognition of the applied arts over the past decade, driven by the success of an array of the creative industries, creative enterprise, artists and businesses has brought fresh attention to, and laid strong foundations for the economics of the applied and visual arts industry and its future development.
While the industry has grown over the last few years, it holds an even greater potential in terms of its impact on the Indian economy, through its direct contributions to employment, skills development as well as supporting a number of high-value ancillary industries. Applied and visual arts are also critical for enhancing key high-value industries such as cultural tourism, and improving India's cultural attractiveness and distinguishing its cultural identity. Thanks to a global understanding of applied arts, the industry thrives well in the export arena and designers who are articulate and aware of world tastes and trends are in great demand to understand the buyer and their needs and be able to deliver appropriate design concepts and solutions.
