Pune, India, July 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global honey market is projected to reach USD 11.88 billion by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period. Increasing consumption of honey to treat severe cough and cold-induced by the coronavirus and the seasonal flu is exacted to propel the growth rate of this market, observes Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled “Honey Market, 2021-2028”. The market size stood at USD 7.84 billion in 2020.


The SARS-CoV-2 infection, which triggered the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, is known to attack the respiratory system of the body, giving rise to moderate to severe cough, cold, and persistent fever. With cases surging worldwide and people showing increasing apprehension in getting admitted into hospitals, there has emerged a growing demand for home-based treatments for possible coronavirus infection. This sweet liquid food called honey, with its proven antimicrobial and antioxidant properties, is becoming the choice cure for many individuals suffering from COVID-induced cough and cold. Research is also supporting the consumption of natural honey to fight viral infections.

For example, in August 2020, researchers at the University of Oxford found that intake of this sweet liquid sped up improvements in symptoms related to cold. Showing no side effects and being rich in nutrients, the study established this product as a viable alternative to antibiotics for respiratory afflictions. The soaring popularity of this natural remedy for sore throat and cold amid the COVID-19 pandemic has enabled the market to grow at an impressive CAGR of 9.0% in 2020.

Driving Factor

Birth of Innovative Bees-related Startups to Reshape Market Dynamics

The demand for natural sweeteners is gaining swift momentum around the globe, with natural honey and other related products garnering much attention since ancient times. The changing dynamics of the natural sweetener industry has led to the birth of innovative startups, creating products and services surrounding the pollination business. For example, OS Beehives, a Colorado-based startup, has developed a remote sensor connected to the network called BuzzBox.

This sensor system uses machine learning to assess hive health based on its interaction with barometric pressure, humidity, and temperature. It is ideal for beekeepers to track their hives remotely. Another unique example is the Germany-based pollination brokerage network, BEEsharing. The network is a multi-faceted platform, designed to connect farmers to beekeepers and beekeepers to vendors for honey, pollen, and beeswax. The broadening presence of startups specializing in this sweet liquid and other bees-related products is, thus, stoking the growth of this market.
