    Beewax market frequently asked questions

    When there's an acute shortage of Beeswax supply from the local (Brazil) region, China with its competitive pricing can present itself as a reliable source for Beeswax.

    According to the beeswax market report by Beroe, Asia-Pacific holds the biggest market share for Beeswax with nearly 52.4% of the global beeswax production share.

    As per Beroe, India, China, and Ethiopia are the leading producers of beeswax. The report also indicates that India's net production capacity can easily touch the valuation of 25,000 MT on an annual basis.

    According to Beroe's beeswax market growth report, China's annual production is approximately 13,000 MT every year.

    As per Beroe's analysis, beekeeping accounts for nearly 1.3% of Ethiopia's GDP, and it's a major market.

    After China, most buyers in the beeswax market look at the LATAM region, Argentina in particular, when it comes to outsourcing of beeswax. The shortage in Brazil further aggravates the demand.

    As per the beeswax market trends, it can be concluded that LATAM (Latin ' America) is the second biggest region after APAC (Asia ' Pacific) in terms of global beeswax production. The contributing factor is the rapid growth of beekeeping in Argentina and Brazil that paves the way for sustainable growth of beeswax in these regions over time.

    According to the beeswax market size report shared by Beroe, the LATAM region holds 13.2% of global beeswax production.

    As per reports, Argentina is the biggest beeswax producer in the LATAM region and holds the fourth position globally. Brazil and Uruguay are additional producers of beeswax from the LATAM area since beekeeping is continuously growing in Brazil, which assures promising growth.

    The end-to-end competition from the pharmaceutical and cosmetic companies makes it hard for the beeswax industry to source the end product.

    Producing beeswax is quite cheaper which increases the demand; however, the market growth is directly challenged by the high beeswax market price compared to that of synthetic waxes. The beeswax market forecast report also indicates that the demand for beeswax use will rise in the cosmetic industry which will further drive the market growth.

    As per Beroe's analysis, beeswax is majorly used in blush, eye shadow, lip gloss, moisturizers, and lip balm. It is also used in soap, and as hair pomades and mustache wax.

    Buyer Insights: Besides China, the industry can consider Argentina as the most ideal LATAM region for sourcing beeswax, in case of shortage in Brazil.
