Honey is now one of the key ingredients for the thriving health food industry. Honey has a variety of flavors and qualities, making it used by a number of end-user industries in addition to foods and beverages, including pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and personal care.

Food and beverages have long been the dominant end user of bee products, especially honey, and will remain so for many years to come. The industry uses honey as a sweetener and as a flavoring agent. As the adverse health effects of sugar sweeteners become more apparent, the demand for honey is increasing. The growing consumer preference for low-calorie, healthy and natural sweeteners is expected to keep the demand for honey from this end-user industry stable.

The growth in the global market will be fueled by strong demand for honey and other bee products worldwide combined with the factor of insufficient availability. The prominence of commercial beekeeping would increase as several new industries start using honey and other bee products. In particular, cosmetic and medicinal use of bee products is said to stimulate demand.

Manuka honey, for example, is rapidly gaining popularity for its antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. New bee colonies are constantly being established in all major producing countries to meet the growing demand for bee products. In the future, there would also be a stronger awareness of sustainable beekeeping practices. A growing awareness of the importance of bees to our ecosystem would force breeders to adopt sustainable methods such as preserving the native bee population, using beehives, giving more control to bees, etc.
