Published on Aug 09, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Propolis Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global propolis market reached a value of US$ 625.5 Million in 2021. Propolis refers to a resin-like substance that is generally produced by honeybees from the cone-bearing trees and buds of poplar. A combination of the sap along with beeswax and honeybee’s discharge that creates a greenish-brown sticky product, propolis is produced to be used as a coating to build beehives. It is composed of resins, waxes, pollen, essential oils and various organic compounds and is widely utilized to prevent the growth of bacteria, fungi and viruses. Due to the presence of anti-inflammatory properties in propolis, it is commonly used for treating genital herpes, burns, mouth swelling and sores.
