Vanillin belongs to an organic functional group that includes aldehyde, hydroxyl, and ethers. Vanillin is majorly used for flavouring and aromatic functions. It is extracted from vanilla beans. Vanillin is produced naturally, by biosynthesis or by chemical synthesis processes. Natural vanillin is produced from vanilla extracts, which is scarce and involves expensive processing. Biosynthetically, vanillin is produced from phenylpropanoid pathway or benzoate pathway. In chemical synthesis, vanillin is produced from guaiacol (precursor of petrochemicals) or lignin. Lignin based vanillin is recorded to have rich flavour in comparison to other artificial vanillin.

Commercially, there are two types of vanillin namely ethyl vanillin and methyl vanillin. Ethyl vanillin is expensive and is stronger than methyl vanillin. Ethyl vanillin is a white crystalline powder with strong vanilla flavour. It is an important synthetic essence and is used as food additive. Methyl vanillin is white crystals with mild vanilla planifolia flavour.

Vanillin is used for flavour and aroma in food and beverage industry specifically for confectionaries, bakery products, ice creams, candies, biscuits, chocolates and others. In fragrance industry, it is majorly used in perfumes. In addition, it is used as flavouring and aromatic mask in medicines, toothpastes, cleaning products and livestock fodders. Vanillin acts as a chemical intermediate in the production of pharmaceuticals and other fine chemicals.

Global vanillin market can be segmented based on its applications such as food and beverages, pharmaceuticals, fragrance, bakeries, oral care, toys, and others. Food & beverages and pharmaceuticals are the major applications in the global vanillin market. Artificial or chemically synthesized vanillin is preferred over naturally produced vanillin; owing to the economy of scales.
The vanillin market is growing rapidly owing to demand from bakery and confectionary industry in the countries such as India, China, Thailand, Malaysia, Japan, and Indonesia. Asia Pacific region is the major vanillin market in terms of demand and expected to be major revenue generating market over the forecast period. The major constraint to this market is the growing health concerns regarding the chemically synthesized vanillin.

Leading players in global vanillin market are Borregaard, Evolva Holding SA, Solvay SA, Jiaxing Zhonghua Chemical Industry Co., Ltd., Watkins Natural Gourmet, Virginia Dare, Shanghai Xinjia, Zibo Svolei, Liaoning Shixing, Synnova Chemicals and Prinova Group LLC.

Other Related Terms And Report:

Kraft Lignin: Kraft lignins or sulphate lignins are present in a by-product stream of the Kraft pulping process known as black liquor. The commercial kraft lignins are generally sold in the sulphonated form or as lignin amines.


Lignosulfonates: In the sulfite pulping process, the lignins are sulphonated so they become water soluble and thus can be separated from the insoluble cellulose. The soluble lignins are called lignosulfonates.


Lignin: It is a lignocellulosic biomass component found in large quantities in the world. It is fibrous complex chemical polymer of mono-lignols.
