Facts and Figures – Data on the Industry

Home / Industry / Facts and Figures – Data on the Industry

You’ll find national data here, on the general size of the cut flower and foliage industry in Australia.

The latest business data reports estimate that for every 100 businesses in the Australian flower industry, approximately

  • 28 are in VIC
  • 25 in NSW
  • 21 in QLD
  • 10 in WA
  • 8 in SA
  • 6 in TAS
  • 1 in NT

There are a little under 900 flower farms and foliage growers in Australia, supplying almost 2000 florists and retailers. The number of retailers roughly break down, state by state, as :

  • 740 in NSW
  • 526 in VIC
  • 340 in QLD
  • 188 in WA
  • 120 in SA
  • 60 in TAS
  • 22 in ACT
  • 4 in NT

though, of course, florists and other flower retailers are opening, closing, and changing hands every year, so these numbers are subject to change.

There are not many detailed industry statistics for the Australian flower industry as a whole, or much market research on flower sales. If you are looking for specific data on the regional market, try your local Grower Association or Florist Organisation, for state-based figures on production or sales.

You’ll find info here on Australia’s best selling flowers.
