U.S. sodium bicarbonate market size, by end-user, 2013 - 2024 (USD Million)
Sodium bicarbonate is commonly used as baking soda in food and beverage and animal feed. High consumption of grains, dairy, sugar, meat and fish products increases the body acid level which results into several health problems. Consumption of baking soda which is commonly used term for sodium bicarbonate in food & beverage industry, neutralizes the acidic level of body and reduces the risk of several diseases such as arthritis, digestive disorder, heartburn and stomach upset. Application of sodium bicarbonate in wide range of products such as dairy, beers, ciders, cereals, noodles, confectioners, pretzels, etc. will drive the market. Further its excellent properties such as enhancing cakes volume, will positively influence the global sodium bicarbonate market.
Application of agrochemical is rapidly growing with increasing crop cultivation due to rising population especially in Asia Pacific region. Usage of sodium bicarbonate in agrochemical is driven by practice of treating insects in farmlands and washing pesticides from fruits & vegetables. Furthermore, it is environment friendly natural agent therefore used in the form of pesticides in agricultural farm which will accelerate sodium bicarbonate market demand over the coming years.
Exceptional properties of sodium bicarbonate such as neutralizing agent, antacid, cleaning agent, effervescence and excellent exfoliation and others makes it an ideal product for application in personal care. Moreover, owing to its antibacterial and absorbent features is used in various products in personal care industry such as acts as an absorbent in deodorants, cleanses the mouth, used in tooth paste etc. Therefore, such properties enhance the application of the sodium bicarbonate in personal care, oral care and few medical care products.
Market is challenged by side effects and complications on consumption of sodium bicarbonate to human health. It is not recommended for treating serious illnesses as sodium bicarbonate may cause certain medical emergencies when consumed in higher quantity. For instance, consumption for longer duration can cause allergic reactions, such as skin rashes or itching, swelling of the face, and difficulty in breathing. Therefore, restriction on the use of sodium bicarbonate in certain medical conditions like kidney disorders, heart diseases, and low level of potassium in the blood and high blood pressure will negatively impact sodium bicarbonate market over the forecast period.
Increasing application of yeast and sodium acetate over sodium bicarbonate in pharmaceutical, food & beverage, and home care industries will hinder sodium bicarbonate market growth. It has the least harmful effects on human consumption, making it an ideal application for the food industry which may decelerate market growth over projected timeframe. These products act as substitutes for sodium bicarbonate mainly few industries.
Sodium Bicarbonate Market, By Form
Crystal/powdered crystal product segment held the highest sodium bicarbonate market share in terms of revenue. It is majorly used in various food products and agrochemical items. Increasing consumption of sodium bicarbonate in food & beverage and agrochemical industry is augmenting the demand for Crystal/powdered crystal product segment. Further major consumption of sodium bicarbonate is done in crystal/powdered crystal which is growing the market by CAGR of over 5.5% in forecast period.
Liquid product segment is growing with a CAGR of 4.6% by 2024. High volume consumption of sodium bicarbonate in industrial, personal care and others is expected to augment the demand for liquid segment over the projected period. Slurry form type is witnessing sluggish growth owing to increasing application of substitutes products.
Sodium Bicarbonate Market, By End-user
Food and beverage industry is significantly growing with CAGR of 5.3%, growing consumption of sodium bicarbonate in various food item such as bakery products will positively influence the sodium bicarbonate market. Shift in consumer food habitat toward meat, dairy and other heavy food item is disturbing the body pH level which is encouraging the need of sodium bicarbonate. Thus, change in consumer food habitat is favoring the consumption of sodium bicarbonate in food & beverage industry.
Agrochemical market is growing at positive rate owing to increasing usage of these products in pest killing agrochemical products such as pesticides and insecticides. Rising demand for agrochemical in Asia Pacific countries will drive the market growth.
Sodium Bicarbonate Market, By Region
