Design Education’s Importance and Impact are Growing. Design in India has progressed and is now thriving. India’s potential design market is predicted to be INR 188.32 billion by 2020. (GBP1.43 billion). Currently, only a fifth of the design market is being exploited. The number of design institutions has increased from a handful in 2010 to over 70 in 2016. The number of design aspirants is growing every year, thanks to favourable demographics, rising educational aspirations, openness to seek different vocations, work chances, and greater affordability of higher education. If the design potential is completely realised, 62,000 designers will be required in the industrial, visual, communication, packaging, and other design areas by 2020. Currently, the country has roughly 7,000 qualified designers and 5,000 students enrolled in design programmes.
The statistics are based on 2016 documentation. However, the potential for Design has grown much more now.
