LifePage Career Talk on Bamboo Entrepreneurship

By Ajay Thakur
[Scientist (E) in Forest Research Institute]

Bamboo Industry is a growing industry, the markets for bamboo can be grouped into traditional and non-traditional or emerging markets. Demand remains strong in traditional markets such as handicrafts, blinds and bamboo shoots with profitable opportunities despite moderate growth. Other traditional markets, such as chopsticks, are highly commoditized with low growth and low profit margins. Emerging bamboo markets include flooring, building products and laminated furniture. These represent the largest growth opportunities for bamboo.
