According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “China Saccharin Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024”, the China saccharin market size reached 17,061 Tons in 2018. Saccharin is a non-nutritive, artificial sweetener that is prepared by oxidizing o-toluenesulfonamide or phthalic anhydride. It is a white colored powder with a crystalline texture and is considered to be much sweeter than table sugar. Soluble in water, stable and devoid of any calories, this sweetener has a long shelf life and can be safely consumed even after a long period of storage. Characterized by a slightly bitter and metallic aftertaste in high concentrations, it is usually combined with other low-calorie sweeteners for the preparation of numerous low-calorie and sugar-free products, such as jams, jellies, candies, carbonated drinks, cookies, baked goods and canned fruits.
China Saccharin Market Trends:
The market is primarily driven by the growing awareness regarding the consumption of low-calorie sweeteners in China. Owing to various factors such as shifting dietary preferences, hectic and prolonged working schedules, coupled with a lack of physical activity, have resulted in an increasing prevalence of obesity and lifestyle diseases such as diabetes. Consequently, health-conscious individuals are increasing the inclusion of saccharin in their daily diets as a measure to curb high-calorie consumption. Additionally, saccharin forms a crucial ingredient in the manufacturing of syrup-based medicines. It is also used as a coating on certain chewable tablets to render a sweet taste. The flourishing pharmaceutical industry in the country is providing further thrust to the market growth. Easy availability of raw material in China and low production costs are some of the other factors contributing to the market expansion in the country.
