Pharma Grade Sodium Bicarbonate Market Size Analysis

According to a recent survey conducted by ChemView Consulting, the Global Pharma Grade Sodium Bicarbonate Market grew at a CAGR of 4.1% between 2017-2021 and is estimated to be US$ 291.6Mn in 2022. Currently, the market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 4.7% and is expected to reach a valuation of US$ 461.6Mn by 2032 end.

One major element driving up sales in this market is the expanding use of generic sodium bicarbonate in topical cleaning solutions and systemic alkalizer syrups. It is also used as a pH buffering agent for replacing electrolytes.

Everywhere in the world, soda bicarbonate in pharmaceutical products has increased dramatically. It is widely utilized in this business as an excipient and an Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) to treat conditions like metabolic acidosis, primary lactic acidosis, extracorporeal blood circulation, uncontrolled diabetes, and cardiac arrest.

Market Dynamic


It is predicted that shortly, there will be an increase in the prevalence of several autoimmune disorders, including type 2 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, atherosclerosis, and cardiovascular disease. Patients taking these drugs might aid in triggering an anti-inflammatory pathway and preventing autoimmune disorders.

Generic sodium bicarbonate is probably used as an ingredient by several personal care product manufacturers operating on a global scale to make toothpaste. In addition to speeding up, teeth whitening helps prevent gum disorders, cavities, and tooth decay. WHO estimates that almost 3.5 billion individuals worldwide suffer from oral disorders, with untreated tooth decay being the most prevalent illness affecting permanent teeth. During the forecast period, it is predicted that these factors will increase demand for sodium bicarbonate powder.


The market for pharmaceutical-grade sodium bicarbonate is expanding, which may present tremendous potential opportunities. Some important uses of pharma-grade sodium bicarbonate include excipients, antacids, tablet coating, hemodialysis, API, toothpaste, and others. They come in fine and coarse grades.

The API market is predicted to keep a prominent position in terms of application. The development of effervescent pills and pharmaceutical-grade sodium bicarbonate as a manufacturing step are both common uses. The pharma-grade sodium bicarbonate market may benefit from these factors as growth catalysts.
