Global sodium benzoate market for food and beverage

Food spoilage has been a serious issue for the food and beverage industry. In food and beverage products, sodium benzoate is commonly used as a preservative and antibacterial agent. Sodium benzoate prevents the degradation of food and beverage products and inhibits the growth of microorganisms.

Sodium benzoate can be used in various food and beverage products such as fruit salads, jam, jellies, fruit juices, soft drinks, carbonated drinks, snacks, and pickles. The increasing demand for convenience and processed food and beverage products is likely to drive the demand for sodium benzoate. The changing lifestyle and rising concerns of consumers toward food safety are likely to foster the market growth.

Global sodium benzoate market for pharmaceuticals

Sodium benzoate is widely used in pharmaceutical applications, mainly as a preservative. It acts as an antibacterial and preservative in various pharmaceutical products such as ointments, syrups, tinctures, and oral liquid preparations. It helps in healing superficial fungal skin infections.

Sodium benzoate exhibits decent solubilizing effects thus, it is commonly used as a co-solvent in pharmaceutical drugs such as caffeine preparations and aesthetic compositions. The pH of the medium is an important factor for the effectiveness of sodium benzoate. It is also used for liver function as a diagnostic acid.

“The pharmaceutical applications of sodium benzoate are increasing due to continuous innovations and R&D. Thus, the considerable growth in the pharmaceutical industry is likely to drive the market for sodium benzoate,” says Ajay.

Global sodium benzoate market for personal care

Generally, most cosmetics contain water, peptides, oils, and carbohydrates, which act as a good medium for the growth of microbes. Cosmetic preservatives extend the shelf life of the product by preventing spoilage. Sodium benzoate is economical and safe to use as a preservative. The controlled and limited use of sodium benzoate does not cause any side effect. Sodium benzoate produces an odorless, colorless solution when mixed with water.

Sodium benzoate is predominantly used in personal care applications mainly as a preservative, masking ingredient, and anti-corrosive agent.
