About the flowerbulb industry
The Netherlands is world leader in the international flowerbulb industry. An estimated 8.5 billion bulbs are produced in our country each year. They find their way to customers all over the world. The Netherlands holds about 60% of world production and about 85% of world trade in flowerbulbs. About 1,500 Dutch bulb growers supply about 100 Dutch trading companies. Export is very important. Many customers are located in the United States, Japan, China and Russia. Sales in European countries (including the Netherlands) are stable. To an important extent, the flowerbulbs go to nurseries that make flowers and potted plants out of them. The other part goes to garden centers and supermarkets, where consumers buy flowerbulbs to plant them in the garden. Read more about the meaning of the flower bulb sector at iBulb.
