Industry Insights

The global honey powder market size was valued at USD 1.18 billion in 2018 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 4.1% during the forecast period. Honey powder is a natural sweetener that helps increase the shelf life of bakery products including bread, pastry, and muffins. Increasing use of the product as a natural sweetener and shifting consumer inclination towards organic and natural products is expected to further drive the demand.

Crystalline honey is an alternative to liquid honey as the powder is easy to handle and has improved storage stability. The powder is blended with maltodextrin as a carrier to make it free-flowing. Moreover, crystal honey does not contain any artificial food colors, anti-sticking agents, and other added ingredients. It is a pure and free-flowing powder with a fine crystal structure of light yellow to pale brown color.

Moreover, it is a low-calorie food ingredient, which is expected to gain the attention of health-conscious consumers. Honey powder also has various applications in beauty products. Honey in its raw form serves as an excellent face mask. It helps in making the skin soft, smooth, and glowing. Since the powder retains the characteristics of raw honey, it is used in the formulation of various skin and bath products.

Application Insights

Bakery products accounted for the largest market share of approximately 46.2% in 2018. The honey powder is increasingly being used for manufacturing various bakery products, as it increases shelf life and stability required in bakery products. According to a study published in Food Research International, it was observed that the use of the product increases stability and moisture retention capacity of bread crumbs. This slowed the staling of bread crumbs and increased its shelf life. The honey powder has a significant effect on yeast activity during fermentation, which makes the bread loaves fluffy and soft.

Beauty products are expected to witness an accelerated CAGR of 5.0% from 2019 to 2025. The product has antiseptic, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory characteristics. Cosmetic manufacturers are leveraging these characteristics in their product offerings to make natural cosmetics. Moreover, honey has humectant properties that allow it to attract moisture from hair. Coupled with antibacterial and softening properties, this makes it suitable for hair care products as well. Manufacturers are investing heavily in R&D to find the untapped potential of the product. This is expected to increase demand from the application segments and fuel the market growth.

Regional Insights

In terms of revenue, North America accounted for the largest market share of more than 56% in 2018.
