Statistics Of Architects In India

HOW MANY ARCHITECTS ARE THERE IN INDIA TODAY?

As on 30.11.2013, there are a total of 49,463  i.e. approximately Fifty thousand Architects in India. In the past 5 years the number has increased by twenty thousand.


WHAT IS THE RATIO OF MALE AND FEMALE ARCHITECTS IN INDIA?

Out of these fifty thousand Architects, 60% (29,712) is Male while 40% (19,751) is Female. The number of women architects has increased in the past 5 years from 34% to 40%.

An interesting fact is that while 35% of the male Architects are self employed, only about 22 % of female Architects are self employed. This could be because the general perception about women Architects is that they are better suited to be interior designers and so people hesitate to approach a woman Architect for architectural services.

Out of the fifty thousand architects in India, 25,000 Architects (50%) are in the age group of 20-35 and there are just about 2200 Architects (5%) in the age group of 66-75. Surprisingly, there are 688 Architects in the age group 76-85, and believe it or not there are 71 Architects older than 85 who are still practicing. Architecture being a creative field, one can just not fix an age of retirement. So if you have the enthusiasm for it, you could still be practicing at 90!
