Value of the import and export of orchids in the Netherlands 2008-2018

Every year, a large amount of orchids was exported from the Netherlands. In the last decade, the export trade of orchids far outnumbered the import trade. In 2018, the export trade was valued at nearly 76 million euros. By comparison, the import trade was worth just under 2.3 million euros. The total value of trees, plants and flowers exported from the Netherlands in 2017 was over 9.1 billion euros.

 Exporting tulips 

  The Netherlands is well-known for producing flowers, but orchids are by no means the country’s most important flowery export product. The trade in tulips and tulip bulbs, for example, is much more important to the country. In 2018, the value of tulip bulb exports alone was roughly 215 million euros.

Decline in flower growing companies

Producing flowers was the responsibility of around 900 flower growing companies in the Netherlands. In the last decade, however, the number of flowers growing companies in the country decreased significantly. In 2007, there had been nearly 2,100 flower producers. A decade later, under half of these producers was left.
