Cheirotonus parryi is quite common in suitable habitats throughout its range, but is a protected species in Thailand.

The species faces increasing pressure from habitat destruction, and there is concern over the shrinking areas of suitable forest - modern machinery has facilitated the deforestation of mountain slopes even in areas which were once thought of as inaccessible.

This species together with other large scarab beetles have become very popular with beetle enthusiasts and breeders across the world. These activities are not detrimental to the long term survival of this beetle when compared with habitat destruction.
