On the municipality territory is produced rose oil of the highest quality possible. Besides roses, during the several past years Strelcha successfully cultivates lavender, from which is extracted first0class essential oil.

The optic industry is presented by the „Optic-mechanical plant”. It is the main producer of optic lenses in Bulgaria and the only producer of astigmatic and prescription lenses. The „Rockwork” plant processes rocks and produces rock tiles. It also produces glass rims. In the Strelcha region is also developed the extraction and processing of feldspar.
