Global Sclareolide Methane Market: Introduction
Sclareolide, also known as norambreinolide, is a sesquiterpene lactone natural product derived from various plant sources including salvia sclarea, salvia yosgadensis, and cigar tobacco.
Sclareolide is primarily used as a fragrant in perfumes, cosmetics, and personal care products. Sclareolide is also used in personal care products for its skin lightening or darkening properties. More recently, sclareolide has been used as a weight-loss supplement, though its effect has not been successfully demonstrated. One of the major applications of sclareolide is to disguise the unpleasant taste in coffee and tobacco while enhancing its flavors.
Global Sclareolide Methane Market: Dynamics
Increasing consumption of cigarettes and tobacco globally is a key factor expected to drive growth of the global sclareolide market over the forecast period. Approximately 5.7 trillion cigarettes were smoked worldwide in 2016, and cigarette consumption is expected to increase in low–medium–HDI countries, owing to dynamic economic development, and continued population growth, which in turn is expected to drive growth of the global sclareolide market over the forecast period.
In addition, rising demand for sclareolide in cosmetics, personal care products, weight-loss supplements, and sports nutrition, coupled with increasing disposable income is another factor expected to boost growth of the global sclareolide market over the forecast period. According to European trade association – Cosmetics Europe – Europe’s cosmetics and personal care products industry was valued at US$ 88.5 Bn in 2017, making it one of the biggest cosmetics and personal care products markets, globally. The largest national markets for cosmetics and personal care products within Europe are Germany (US$ 15.5 Bn), France (US$ 12.9 Bn), the UK (US$ 12.7 Bn), Italy (US$ 11.5 Bn), and Spain (US$ 7.8 Bn).
Moreover, Sclareolide is known for masking or enhancing with regards to specific taste. Increasing adoption of sclareolide for enhancing the organoleptic properties in food products is expected to drive growth of the global sclareolide market over the forecast period. Use of sclareolide in low-fat ice creams to enhance its creaminess, as well as in food and beverages sweetened with nonnutritive sweeteners, is on the rise. In addition, sclareolide reduces the bitter taste imparted by potassium chloride in salt substitutes and suppresses the disagreeable taste of high-intensity sweeteners, which is expected to further fuel growth of the global sclareolide market over the forecast period.
However, high cost of the product, as 5 gm of sclareolide costs over US$ 50, and 100 gm costs approximately more than US$ 400 is a key restraining factor of the global market over the forecast period. In addition, availability of cost-effective substitutes to de-bitter coffee, and tobacco and the products that provide fragrance in cosmetics are some other factors expected to challenge growth of the target market over the forecast period.
Ongoing trend observed in the target market is increasing use of sclareolide as a weight loss supplement and sports nutrition. Various companies promoting this in order to increase resting metabolism, body fat breakdown, and enhancing thyroid function. For example, Avoca Inc. conducted a research study, that included benefits of sclareolide including increase in cyclic adenosine monophosphate activity, which is effective for weight loss regime. Products such as thermogenic fat burner, thyroid regulating fat loss supplement, etc. have a moderate quantity of 95–97% liquid sclareolide.
Increasing manufacturers focus on strategic merger and acquisition activities in order to enhance product and service portfolio across the globe. For example, in November 2015, Merck KGaA acquired US-based Sigma-Aldrich Corporation, which develops, manufactures, purchases, and distributes various chemicals, biochemicals, and equipment products worldwide. This acquisition focuses on bringing together the products and services, innovative capabilities, and exceptional talent of Merck Millipore and Sigma-Aldrich, in order to create a global leader in the life science industry.
