Rose is the most preferred flower in the international market. India has very high potential for export of cut flowers. In the present study, tabular analysis, per cent share of different countries in production, export and import of cut roses were calculated. Compound growth rates in area and production of cut roses in India and per cent share of different countries in import of Indian cut roses were calculated. It is revealed that India ranked first in area and production of cut roses and exporting only 0.20 to 0.40 per cent of global export trade. The top ten cut roses producing countries in the world are India, China, Ecuador, Colombia, Kenya, Mexico, Italy, Thailand, Japan and Netherlands. India ranks first by contributing 46.54 per cent area under cut roses in the world. India ranked 15th in the export of cut roses by contributing 0.20 per cent cut roses export in the world. India has captured only UK market by exporting 1.61 per cent of its cut Roses import. More than 45 per cent of world’s area under cut roses is in India. In India, West Bengal, Karnataka, Gujarat, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh and Orissa are the states having major production of cut roses. The export of cut roses from India has increased and export price has declined during last three years. The export of cut roses from India has declined in the countries like Australia and Japan and increased in Singapore, New Zealand and Malaysia. Increase in price of cut roses was relatively more in USA, Saudi Arabia, Australia and Netherlands. This indicates the shortfall in export of cut roses. India must concentrate on untapped markets to export and also search new countries to export cut roses as production is on large scale in India.
