Report Description:

The India Honey market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.00% between 2020 and 2026 in terms of value. Honey production in India has seen a 200 percent increase in the last 12 years with sustained efforts and dedicated programs like Honey Mission in the last few years. In India, beekeeping is being accomplished traditionally since time immemorial. It also supplements income from agriculture, generates employment, and also helps in improving the nutritional intake of the rural population. It provides employment to about 0.3 million rural people. Honeybees are vital in sustaining plant biodiversity and also improve yields of crops by cross-pollination. The number of beekeepers, beekeeping companies, and honey societies has also augmented, and as of January 2019, India had 9,091 registered people in the apiary business. India exports 50 percent of the commodity and, in the last 12 years, exports have increased by 207 percent with international demand for honey growing. The National Commission on Agriculture had pictured the requirement for deploying about 150 million Bee colonies for pollinating 12 major agricultural crops in the country. Presently, 200 million Bee colonies are required for enhancing their yield which will provide employment to 21.5 million persons and produce 10 million tons of honey, and an increase in crop production.


Honey is used as a preservative, coloring agent, and flavoring agent apart from being used as a sweetener in food and beverages. The rise in the trend of natural and organic products in the food & beverage and personal care industry in India is majorly driving the market. The demand for natural and organic products is on the rise in India owing to the growing awareness among the consumers regarding the side effects of synthetic chemicals on human health. The growing trend of natural products in the personal care segment is mainly attributed to the rise in the concern among consumers regarding harmful chemicals in the products. Furthermore, increasing the adoption of honey in pharmaceuticals owing to its health benefits is further boosting the growth of the India honey market. Honey also has antiseptic and antibacterial properties. Modern medical science has managed to find uses for honey in chronic wound management and combating infection. Honey is used to treat a wide range of illnesses, ailments, and injuries. Furthermore, honey is historically used in several food and beverages due to its distinct sweet taste and its medicinal benefits. However, the negative effect of overconsumption of honey on human health is anticipated to hamper the market. Honey is an added sugar which contributes excess calories to an individual's diet but not much in the way of nutrients and minerals. Moreover, the government initiative to promote beekeeping and consumption of honey is expected to offer growth opportunities for the market during the forecast period.


Among the cities, Mumbai consumes the largest volume of honey than other cities as it is the largest city in India and is one of the most urbanized and populated cities in India. The rising urbanization leading to changing lifestyles and the affluence of the working population with an increase in disposable income has played an important role in increasing the consumption of honey in the city. Delhi is the second-largest market for honey as it is one of the fastest-growing cities in the country. Further, due to the presence of an educated and conscious population base, the consumption of honey in Delhi is soaring. Kolkata also holds a significant market share of the India honey market. Kolkata has the highest per capita purchasing power among all metros due to smaller populations and low poverty compared with other metros.
