Herbal medicinal products are getting global importance because of their health benefits. Their demand is going to increase because of increased and domestic interest of consumers in natural products as they are considered safer and more cost effective than synthetic drugs in many occasions.

Overall international trade in medicinal plants and their products was US$ 60 billion in 2010 and is expected to reach US$ 5 trillion by 2050. In Asia, the demand of herbal market had almost doubled during late 1990’s due to increase in population.
