Interiorscape Forum / Scaper Talk Discussion Forum / Introductions / How big is the Interior Planscape Industry?
Posted:  13 Jan 2015 06:13  
I am giving a talk at a local community college horticulture class on our Industry. One question is "How big is the Interior Plantscape Industry? " Does anyone have a more national or even worldly view  than I do ? Is our industry in many countries throughout the world? How many Interior Plantscape companies are in the US and Canada?Thanks!

Not very big, I can tell you that.  I'm not sure where you can get accurate figures, though.  We don't have a real industry group that represents the vast majority of us, so reporting of figures such as those is going to be spotty at best. 

Here's a site that purports to be able to furnish data like that for any industry, and lists "interior landscaping" among the categories of available data in their report on the landscape services industry overall.  You have to pay for the report, though.

Interestingly, I did stumble across a service that supplies info to businesses looking to purchase our goods and services and assists them with price and market data:

Good luck with your search, it's going to be tough dredging up any good data.

Adding to what Clem said, there are interior landscape companies all over the world .  In all the big cities and metropolitan areas,  in Europe,  Mid-east,  India, Asia, Africa,  the big buildings and high-end customers have plants in their offices.  Many of the practices are different, but the industry definitely exists.  It will take a lot of research to ferret out info on all of these.  I can tell you that interior landscaping is usually lumped in with landscape or ornamental horticulture, and sometimes floral industry.

And a lot of facilities management companies in other parts of the world probably do in-house interiorscaping, partly because it's cheaper for them to include it with their exterior landscaping services, and partly because our industry might not be as fully developed there as it is here and in western Europe.

Hi,
This is my first post on the forum as I just joined today! I came across this thread I know its a couple of years old but I had to respond to Clem's comment about the industry being "not very big".
It's massive!
After operating a domestic lawn and garden business for 6 years I thought I'd try something different when I saw a plantscape Tech position available and I got the the job.
I was blown away by the scale, Just think of how many high rise buildings there are in every capital city then imagine every office, boardroom, launch room, reception desk, call center and so on. sometime hundreds in the same building!
Now add shopping centers, surgeries, factories and government building into the mix and any other business you can think of and that's just the client side, now add in the suppliers of pots, soils, fertilizers, tools and so on.
It's big business with big dollars in my view.
