The global apiculture market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.12% to reach a market size of US$10.074 billion by 2023, increasing from US$8.378 billion in 2017. Apiculture is the practice of managing honeybee colonies to attain desired products such as honey, pollen, beeswax etc. The global demand for bee-products, especially honey and propolis, is expanding due to increasing incentives for their consumption. Honey is finding its way in the natural food industry due to its varied qualities and flavor, diversity of use and form and aesthetics. The growth is attributed to the growing awareness and increasing promotion of its benefits to health and wellbeing. Industries such as personal care, pharmaceutical, food and beverages, and chemicals are increasingly investing in beekeeping owing to the increasing demand for bee-products. Brazil is an important player in apiculture and produces high yields of quality product including raw honey and GM-pollen free honey, due to its land mass, diverse floral source and ability to produce honey all year around. In countries like the US, bee-keeping is highly affected by weather conditions whereas, South Africa has a huge market for bee-keeping activities. The South African Bee Industry Organization (SABIO) supports the Beekeeping Industry in South Africa. This is done in order to maintain an economically viable agriculture sector and also to ensure security to honey bees from seasonal disturbances.
