Fortified Salts Market Size Worth $11.45 Billion By 2032 | CAGR: 7.8%

The global fortified salts market size is expected to reach USD 11.45 billion by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Fortified Salts Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Product (Iodine, Iron, Double Fortified); By Application; By Distribution Channel; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2024 - 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

Fortified salts are used in the food industry and household cooking processes in place of standardized salts with a view to improving iodine and iron levels in the human body. Research findings showcased that double-fortified salts (DFS) (iodine and iron) and quadruple-fortified salts (iron, iodine, folate, and vitamin B12) are capable of increasing hemoglobin levels in the human body.

Furthermore, increasing research studies are revealing the benefits of fortified salts to consumers. For instance, a study published in Science Direct focused on finding the effectiveness of quadruple fortified salts in preventing anemia and birth defects in South Asia through a randomized controlled trial. It revealed that double-fortified salts enhanced the presence of iron among women of reproductive age and schoolchildren. The meta-analysis showcased the ability of DFS to boost hemoglobin levels and reduce the risk of anemia. These will further enhance the demand for DFS in the coming years.

Iodine plays a crucial role in cognitive development among children, and the lower presence of iodine is one of the major factors leading to goiter. Furthermore, based on the article published by UNICEF, 89% of the global population consumes iodized salt. Iodine deficiency disorders can lead to stillbirth, miscarriage, and cretinism in pregnant women. These factors are encouraging households to adopt fortified salts in the food-making process. Moreover, based on the article published in the Food Safety and Standard Authority of India, the transformation of iodized salt in India resulted in saving 4 billion IQ points in the last two decades. These factors, together, are stimulating the demand for fortified salts during the study period.
