Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The demand for organic food in China is a result of concerns about the environment, discovery of toxic substances in food, and the effects of intensive farming. There has been an increased demand for organic honey and royal jelly. Though organic beekeeping is in its initial stages in China, it is developing quickly as a result of the current negative image of China’s conventional bee products. Producers are trying to improve the country’s image in the global market by greater production of organic honey, royal jelly, beeswax, and propolis.”

In both the domestic and international markets, people are becoming better informed about their own health and products and practices such as apitherapy, which can improve quality of life.

Further, the report states that the ban on Chinese apiculture products has severely impacted the apiculture market in China and restrained its growth.
