Saccharin Industry Report by Regional Category Spend, Price Analysis, Key Demand, Price Indicators, and Best Buying Practices

The global saccharin market reached a value of about USD 1.28 billion in 2021. The industry is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 1.6% in the forecast period of 2022-2027 to reach a value of USD 1.39 billion by 2027.

The global saccharin industry report gives a comprehensive analysis of the industry including key segments, trends, drivers, restraints, the competitive landscape, and other essential market aspects. One of the older substitutes for refined sugar, saccharin, is a non-nutritive sweetener, has no caloric value and does not get digested by the body, is defecated unchanged. Due to its multiple advantages, saccharin is comprehensively used in food and beverage industry in diet carbonated drinks and other low-calorie commodities. The key demand indicator in the industry report is the highest category spender by region— Asia Pacific.

Industry Definition and Segmentation

Saccharin is a high-intensity, organic petroleum-based combination which is 200 to 700 times sweeter than table sugar or sucrose. It is a white coloured crystalline powdered sweetener that is non-nutritive and non-caloric. It is formulated through the process of oxidation of phthalic anhydride and from o-tolueenesulfonamide. It is generally used as a substitute of refined sugar to sweeten products such as beverages, fruit juice drinks, candles, jellies, cookies, mouth washes and tablets glazing in medicines. The saccharin industry report comprises segments based on by application (food and beverages, tabletop sweeteners, personal care products, pharmaceuticals, and others), form (powder and granular), product (sodium saccharin, insoluble saccharin, and calcium saccharin) and region (North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East and Africa).

The Asia Pacific and Europe Regions are Driving the Growth of the Industry

Over the last two years saccharin market is growing at a highest rate in the Asia Pacific region and accounts for more than half of the global production and consumption primarily due to the growth in the food and beverage and the pharmaceutical sectors. Owing to the increasing health concerns and the progressively augmenting food and beverage industry Europe has also witnessed a growth in its market. Because of the fast-changing lifestyle and likings of the customers to lower their intakes of sugar and encourage weight management the saccharin market has gained popularity leading to its growth. Besides, several steps are taken by various pharmaceutical and manufacturing companies to promote the utilisation of saccharin as a synthetic sweetener and increase in the health awareness among the customers associated with low calorie consumption are estimated to intensify its global demand between 2021-2028. The investment and introduction of new saccharin products and the increase in the health-related issues such as diabetes, obesity and deficiency of vitamins are also anticipated to be the main factors for the market to grow at the international level. Furthermore, the rise in the problems regarding the negative impacts of sugar on health is also raising the growth of global saccharin market.

Although many of the health authorities believe that saccharin consumption is safe for humans, however there is still some doubts about their possible negative impact on consumers health. According to a recent study the consumption of artificial sweetener like saccharin, sucralose, and aspartame may disturb the balance of bacteria in the gut which can result in health issues such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, and cancer. Nonetheless, this study is at its preliminary stage and further investigation is required to see the connection between artificial sweeteners and changes in gut bacteria. Another drawback is that when sodium saccharin concentration surpasses 0.03%, its sweet tastes steadily disappear and ultimately gives a bitter taste.

Best Procurement Practices

The global saccharin industry report by Procurement Resource gives an in-depth analysis of the best buying practices followed by major saccharin products manufacturing and utilising regions across the globe, such as engagement models, contract terms, and buyer and supplier negotiation levers, among others.

Category Management Studies

Saccharin is the earliest merchandised artificial sweetener which is till today prepared by the oxidation of o-toluenesulfonamide, and from phthalic anhydride. Another way of producing saccharin starts with o-chlorotoluene. Insoluble saccharin comes in white crystal form that dissolves at 228.8° to 229.7° C. Whereas, sodium and calcium saccharins are in the form of white coloured crystalline powders that are dissoluble in water. It shows constancy in a pH range of 2 to 7 and at the temperatures of up to 150° C. All forms of this artificial sweetener are non-nutritive and have no calories and hence are predominantly used in the food for diabetics and other low-calorie foods and beverages. Because its high shelf-life saccharin is also used for coating tablets in pharmaceutical sector.

Expanded Demand for Artificial Sweetener in Food and Beverage Industries is Further Driving the Procurement of Saccharin

The largest consumer of saccharin so far is the food and beverages industry. Other leading sectors include tabletop sweeteners, personal care, pharmaceuticals, etc. The food and beverages sector would retain this position for the years to come owing to the increasing disposable income of consumers and their growing preference for low-calorie foods. Moreover, demand from companies involved in the production of anaerobic adhesives, pesticides, herbicides, and insecticides is also expected to provide momentum to the market growth. Another major factor that is increasing the demand for saccharin is the growing health awareness among people concerning the negative impact of sugar consumption on overall health. Because its lower price as compared to other sweeteners it is comprehensively used in its end-use sectors. In addition, people prefer to replace their sugar intake with artificial sweetener as they need a diet with restriction on calories or carbohydrate intake such as diabetics. Several health practitioners also suggest the use of non-caloric sweeteners like saccharin to reduce weight.

The major regions in the industry are North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East and Africa.

Market Landscape

Sodium saccharin owns the most substantial share in the global saccharin market since is predominantly used for dietary reasons and is comparatively low in cost than sugar and hence supports in the regulating the weight issues. It is the most popular product as it provides high level of sweetness owing to it is steady nature, compatibility and has no negative impacts. Sodium saccharin is best suited for diabetic patients’ diet since it does not alter sugar levels in the human body and has no nutritive value. It is also utilised to manufacture animal feed. The growing food and beverage industry and the health awareness among people across the world will positively impact the its growth in the years to come. Some of the key players in the sodium saccharin market are Foodchem, JMC Saccharin, Niran BioChemical, Shree Vardayini Chemical, and Gremount International.

Key Initiatives by Companies

  • In August 2020, Jeil Moolsan Company (JMC Saccharin), is leading the global arena of saccharin and sulfur-based fine chemicals, announced that it acquired a patent on functionalised derivatives of sodium saccharin and the process by which they are manufactured. This patent was filed after a study was done that stated that saccharin derivatives can be applied to diagnose cancerous tumor cells securely and efficiently. The company itself produces a chemical named, OTSA (Ortho-Toluene sulfonamide), which supports in manufacturing superior quality sodium saccharin.  
  • The prominent market players in India are developing and modernizing the production technologies, and establishing value-added products, to withstand the severe competition in the market. These technological improvements have helped in reducing the undesirable consequences of saccharin on both human health and the environment.
