Beekeeping has been one of the oldest activities in India. This makes it one of the leading honey markets in the world which has created an intense competition in terms of innovation and cost. Additionally, the demand for honey in India is augmenting on account of the growing consumer preference for natural and healthy alternatives of artificial sweeteners, rising awareness regarding the benefits of honey and increasing popularity of various honey flavors. In addition, owing to its proven anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties, honey is projected to gain a momentum in both the food and non-food applications across the country. 

Indian Honey Industry Drivers:

  • Honey is a rich source of antioxidants and flavonoids which can reduce oxidative stress and inflammation in the body while protecting against heart diseases and cancer. Apart from this, honey also has antibacterial and antiseptic qualities that accelerate wound and burn healing by providing a moist environment and increasing the flow of nutrients to the affected area. Owing to these factors, the demand for honey has gained traction for home remedies.
  • Honey is available in different flavors depending upon the flowers used by the bees to produce it. As a result, there is a diverse range of honey products currently available in India which find applications in the food and beverage, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries.
  • The Government has been supporting the production of honey in India by granting help in developing business through commercialization, R&D activities, innovation and exporting. These initiatives support the producers by advisory and mentoring services, organizing workshops and seminars, general and industry-specific training and providing subsidized products, such as business planning tools.
  • Scientific validation of the medicinal utilization of honey and its growing value as a premium ingredient in nutraceuticals are also acting as strong market drivers.
