While most handicrafts and gifts exporters are concerned about the EU rapid alert system, the Indian Agarbatti industry is experiencing a unique boom in recent years. Demonetisation had caused many labor-intensive businesses in India to close, but not the agarbatti industry. People tend to pray more during troubled times, so they need more agarbattis than ever to make the prayers more powerful.
The agarbatti industry in India has not changed too much since the introduction of PM Modi’s Make in India scheme. In fact, agarbattis made in Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka are used widely across the world. The quality of the agarbatti produced in Bangalore is renowned, and it is possible to find agarbattis made in these states. While the Chinese are primarily importing these agarbattis for domestic consumption, Gujarat and Maharashtra also have a growing export market.
As the popularity of agarbattis has waned in recent years, Indian agarbatti manufacturers have been trying to make them more appealing to the international market. Some agarbattis made in India are sold in the United States, Mexico, and other countries. Agarbattis made in Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka are the most popular among foreign buyers. In addition to a vast domestic market, Gujarat and Maharashtra also have a growing export market.
The use of agarbatti in India has spread far beyond its original holy places. In addition to their traditional religious uses, agarbattis have gained popularity as room fresheners. Not only do they give a house a fresh scent, but they also enhance the effects of meditation. Students, in particular, can use incense sticks to improve concentration levels and study more effectively. It’s no wonder that so many people use them at home!
While agarbattis are used mostly for worship and spiritual rituals in India, they are also widely used in everyday life. Agarbattis are just not restricted to temples. They can be used at different places, including puja ghars. They also help enhance concentration and increase positive feelings. They can help you focus better and perform Yoga. Agarbattis have become an integral part of Indian culture and are widely used today.
