June 21 has been observed as the International Yoga Day since 2015. In 2019, the Yoga market was worth $37,462.5 million and is expected to increase to $66,226.4 million by 2027.
It was Prime Minister Narendra Modi who proposed to celebrate Yoga during his speech to the UN General Assembly in 2014, soon after he had received a historic mandate to form the government. As the United Nations approved the same, June 21 has been observed as the International Yoga Day since 2015. While Yoga has always been India’s own way to fitness, it was PM Modi who made it mainstream and spread a wider awareness across the world.
PM Modi also established the Ministry of Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha, and Homoeopathy (AYUSH), which has given the entire industry a much-needed boost.As a result, the global Yoga market is now expected to reach $66.2 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 9.6%, according to Allied Market Research.

Furthermore, Yoga promotes blood pressure management, aids in illness prevention, stabilises hormonal fluctuations, regulates blood sugar, and aids in the balance of body fluids. Yoga’s extensive health benefits are projected to propel the industry further in the coming years.
In 2019, the Yoga market was worth $37,462.5 million and is expected to increase to $66,226.4 million by 2027, with a CAGR of 9.6% from 2021 to 2027. Although North America has the largest share of the yoga market, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to develop at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period.
