India's mushroom market is expanding rapidly and has a lot of potential due to its growing interest in vegetarian and vegan diets, the need for organic products, and the growing knowledge of the health benefits of mushrooms. Among the major varieties of mushrooms grown in India, the white button mushroom (Agaricus bisporus) is one of the most commonly grown and used commercial varieties and is widely cultivated in India. Oyster mushroom (Pleurotus spp.) is a common variety of mushrooms grown in northern India, offering a range of nutritional benefits that support general health, immunity, heart health, bone health, weight management and disease prevention due to their rich nutritional profile and bioactive compounds. India has the potential to become a key player in the global mushroom industry through its diversified climate, its considerable domestic market and increased public awareness. It can provide a wide range of edible and medical mushrooms to meet the growing demand around the world.
