U.S. artificial flowers market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The artificial flowers industry is experiencing a significant surge in popularity, driven by current home decor trends. In June 2022, Hobbycraft, an arts and crafts superstore retail chain in the UK reported that faux flowers have become a major trend, with a notable 8% increase in sales since last year. In October 2021, major retailers like Tesco and Amazon reported a significant increase in sales of artificial flowers, contributing to the market's growth. One of the key drivers is the cost-effectiveness and convenience of faux flowers, eliminating the need for frequent replacements and cleanup associated with real flowers. In addition, the trend is evolving beyond traditional vase displays, with an emerging focus on incorporating artificial flowers into creative arrangements like wreaths.

The artificial flowers industry is experiencing significant growth driven by innovations such as real-touch polyether polyurethane (PU) foam technology. Historically, artificial flowers were perceived as cheap and low quality. However, advancements in manufacturing processes and materials have led to the creation of high-quality, realistic artificial flowers that closely resemble real ones. These real-touch flowers, especially those made from PU foam, offer benefits such as low maintenance, durability, and vibrant colors, making them ideal for commercial spaces like offices, hotels, spas and salons, and retail stores. Their longevity, cost-effectiveness, and customization options have driven their adoption in various settings, contributing to the overall growth of the market.

Material Insights

Based on material, the polyester segment contributed to a revenue share of 33.98% in 2022 and is expected to maintain its lead over the forecast period. This is mainly attributed to the high degree of versatility and durability offered by polyester making it an ideal choice to manufacture realistic and long-lasting artificial flowers.Its ability to hold vibrant colors and intricate details enhances the visual appeal of polyester flowers. In addition, manufacturing artificial flowers from polyester fabric is cheaper than materials such as silk, which is driving its increased popularity and demand.

The silk flowers segment accounted for a revenue share of 11.97% in 2022. The market has a rich history rooted in ancient Chinese silk-making techniques. Initially crafted from silk, artificial flowers gained prominence when Italian and French artisans started creating faux blooms using silkworm cocoons. With the evolution in materials and technological advancements in manufacturing processes, polyester, and plastic have become the preferred material choices for the production of artificial flowers.

The paper segment is anticipated to witness a CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast period. This is mainly attributed to paper being a sustainable alternative to materials such as polyester and plastic, aligning with the increasing environmental consciousness among consumers. Furthermore, advancements in paper manufacturing technology have led to the creation of highly realistic and visually appealing artificial flowers, enhancing their appeal. The affordability of paper as a raw material also makes these artificial flowers cost-effective, and appealing to budget-conscious consumers. In addition, the growing trend of DIY (Do-It-Yourself) crafts and home decor projects has boosted the demand for paper-based artificial flowers, driving the market growth.

Application Insights

Artificial flowers and plants are now referred to as "semi-natural" and closely follow fresh flower trends in terms of species, colors, and popular varieties. Carnations, chrysanthemums, and roses are top choices for artificial flowers. The rental business, including exhibitions, offices, and special events like weddings, drives significant demand for artificial flowers and plants. Rental companies predominantly use "silk polyester" products due to their washable nature, colorfastness, and shape retention. This shift towards textile-based artificial flowers in commercial applications reflects the changing preferences and ecological considerations of consumers in the market.
