Propolis is a resinous substance collected from the buds of certain trees by bees and used as a cement or sealant in the construction of their hives.
The raw and unprocessed propolis commonly consists of roughly 55 percent resinous compounds and balsam, 30 percent beeswax, 10 percent ethereal and aromatic oils, and 5 percent bee pollen. Its constituents and color, ranging from golden brown to reddish to almost black, depends on the tree source of collection, the most common being dark brown. Propolis is sticky at and above room temperature, 20 °C (68 °F). At lower temperatures, it becomes hard and very brittle.
Until now, over 200 chemical compounds have already been identified in the propolis including flavonoids, terpenoids, aldehydes, aromatic acids, aliphatic alcohols and ethers, amino acids, sugars etc. Propolis is widely used in the food industry, cosmetic industry and pharmaceutical industry etc.
Now entering the industry standard is relatively low, which causing the low industry concentration, and a large number of smaller manufacturers.
China is the largest consumption region, with an average consumption growth rate of 11.52% from 2011 to 2016. Brazil, who is also a major production region, is the second consumption region, whose consumption market share is estimated to be 6.66% in 2016. In the next five years, the global consumption of propolis will maintain a 3.50% annual growth rate, consumption is expected to be 2867 Tonnes in 2021.
Along with the development of Chinese domestic propolis, Chinese domestic propolis has been mature and advanced, and the performance distance has been shortening compared with the imported propolis. In addition, the counterfeiting phenomenon is a very serious in China. The country is committed to eliminating illegal processing.
