Indian Honey Market to Reach INR 48.6 Billion by 2032, Spurred by Introduction of Different Flavors

April 12, 2022 | Retail

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Indian Honey Market Report by Flavor (Multiflora Honey, Eucalyptus Honey, Ajwain Honey, Sidr Honey, and Others), Seasonality (Autumn and Spring Season, Winter Season, Summer and Monsoon Season), Distribution Channel (Business to Consumer, Business to Business), and State 2024-2032,” finds that the Indian honey market size reached INR 25.2 Billion in 2023. Honey is a sweet, thick, and golden-colored liquid produced by bees using flower nectar. It is a rich source of vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals, such as niacin, thiamine, pantothenic acid, and riboflavin. It also strengthens the immune system, improves good cholesterol levels, and enhances memory and concentration. The sweetness in honey comes from high levels of monosaccharides, fructose, and glucose present in it. As a result, honey is widely used as a natural sweetener in fermented beverages, wine, and other alcoholic drinks.

Indian Honey Market Trends:

Nowadays, key players are launching different flavors of honey, such as tulsi, ajwain, eucalyptus and jamun, which is one of the key factors driving the market growth. Besides this, the Government of India is introducing various training programs and mentoring services to educate farmers on the latest beekeeping practices. This, coupled with the rising utilization of honey in home remedies due to its antibacterial and antiseptic qualities that aid in healing wounds and burns, is positively influencing the market growth. Moreover, scientific validation of the medicinal properties of honey and its growing usage as a premium ingredient in nutraceuticals are also creating a favorable market outlook. Furthermore, extensive research and development (R&D) activities to improve extraction processes and the easy product availability through e-commerce platforms are escalating the product demand across the country. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach INR 48.6 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.3% during the forecast period (2024-2032).
