It's also used in food as a preservative to keep sugar from crystallizing in beverage items. Glycerin is roughly 60% to 70% sweeter than most alcohol with sugar content, which is predicted to help the entire food grade glycerin industry.Due to its functional and nutritional properties, food grade glycerin is widely used in a variety of consumer items. It has a variety of uses in the food and beverage sector, including food preservatives, sweeteners, and humectants. In the forecast period, rising demand for glycerin by various end use industries around the world is expected to help the worldwide food grade glycerin market acquire considerable revenue.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

  • COVID-19 had an adverse impact on the production of Food Glycerin. Many manufacturers engaged in this industry faced problem due to shut down of the production facilities due to lockdown.
  • Supply chain was disrupted due to COVID-19. Firms were not able to obtain material that they need at the right time, this situation was worsened because many countries went into lockdown at different times and they also reopened at different times. This has caused many problems for the manufacturers as they suffered losses due to loss of sales.
  • Manufacturers of these products were also struggling financially. Many producers suffered financial problems and faced cash crunch.

Top Impacting Factors

  • Because of its many benefits, glycerin for food is in high demand in the food and beverage sector as a low-calorie source of lecithin. It aids in the reduction of consistency, the replacement of more expensive fixings, the control of sugar crystallization, the homogenous blending of fixings, and, most importantly, the improvement of the timeframe for realistic utilization of products.
  • Biodiesel businesses are being forced to expand their production capabilities due to the growing usage of biodiesel as a fuel and mandated blending with petroleum diesel in numerous countries. Because glycerin is a by-product of biodiesel synthesis, global glycerin output has increased significantly.
  • The growing demand for refined and purified glycerin in the manufacturing of personal care, pharmaceutical, and food and beverage goods, combined with strict product quality standards, is likely to drive up demand for pharmaceutical and food grade glycerin around the world.

Market Trends

Increased Demand from the Food and Beverage Industry

Fast-foods and convenience foods are becoming more popular as people's lifestyles and eating habits change in both emerging and developed countries. According to a research released by the United States Department of Agriculture in 2018, more than 30% of Americans choose easily available fast food than traditional cuisine.

As a result, rising global demand for fast food products is predicted to drive up demand for additives like glycerin, which can be used as sweeteners, solvents, or preservatives. In food industry, glycerol is frequently added in food to increase the water-coating ability and act as solvent for various food additives. It is also 60% as sweet as refined sugar and also has low calorie count per tablespoon. It is used as artificial sweetener most commonly in ice creams and baking.

Expanding pharmaceutical industry and rising glycerin use

People are spending more on health-related requirements as the global healthcare landscape changes rapidly. With people becoming more health-conscious and the world's population ageing, demand for pharmaceuticals has risen over the world, resulting in increased consumption of pharmaceutical ingredients and raw materials.As a result of this increase in pharmaceutical product manufacture, demand for raw materials like glycerin is predicted to rise over the forecast period.

In pharmaceutical industry glycerin is the second most used ingredient after water; it has many uses and is used to make the prescriptions palatable. Cough syrups contain glycerin because of its taste and density. Capsules are also made using glycerin because it is nontoxic. Thus is if Pharmaceutical industry expands glycerin industry will expand too.
