This report provides the first analysis of trends in supply and demand for elephant ivory products in China’s markets since the new legislative changes. Compared to a similar 2017 report, the number of stores with elephant ivory for sale decreased by 30% and more than half the ivory products found for sale were concentrated in five provincial cities. Online illegal ivory trade appears to also be declining.
