The Indian saccharin market was worth 4,770 Metric Tons in 2019. Saccharin is an artificial sweetener that is chemically synthesized from O-toluene sulfonamide or Phthalic anhydride. It can be 300 times sweeter than table sugar (sucrose) and does not affect the blood sugar levels or cause tooth decay as it has no calories like other non-nutritive sweeteners. It becomes unstable when heated but does not react chemically with other food ingredients, which makes it suitable for storage. On account of its favorable properties, saccharin is mostly consumed by diabetics and individuals on a sugar-free diet. It is also extensively employed in the manufacturing of diet soft drinks and other low-calorie foods and is useful in foods and pharmaceuticals in which the presence of sugar might lead to spoilage. As a result of this, saccharin is extensively used in various sugar-free products, such as baked goods, jams, chewing gums, tinned fruits, and toothpaste.
With around 72 million people suffering from diabetes, India currently has the second largest population of diabetic patients in the world. The increasing incidences of such health issues have made Indian consumers more conscious of their health and wellbeing. Owing to this, people have started shifting toward low-calorie diets and avoid consuming excess amounts of sugar. Saccharin, being a zero-calorie sweetener, is also used by consumers to manage their weight. Moreover, the leading market players in India are improving and upgrading the production technologies, as well as introducing value-added products, to sustain the intense competition in the market. These technological advancements have helped in minimizing the adverse effects of saccharin on both human health and the environment. Apart from this, various organizations are taking initiatives to promote the usage of saccharin as an artificial sweetener, which in turn is bolstering the growth of the market in India. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach a volume of 5,372 Metric Tons by 2025, at a CAGR of 2.0% over the forecast period (2020-2025).
