Global Quinine Market 2023 – 2032 (By Type)

Quinine Market: Overview

Quinine is a drug for treating malaria and babesiosis. This involves the treatment of Plasmodium falciparum malaria, which is resistant to chloroquine when artesunate is unavailable. Cinchona alkaloid is derived from the bark of the tree. It is an antimalarial drug and the active ingredient in cinchona extracts. Also, Quinine is a mild antipyretic and analgesic that has been used in common cold remedies. As it directly affects the muscle membrane as well as sodium channels, it is also beneficial in the treatment of muscular disorders, particularly nocturnal leg cramps and myotonia congenita.

The FDA has only approved it for treating malaria, but doctors can legally prescribe it for any type of treatment they deem appropriate. Quinine sulphate inhibits Plasmodium falciparum nucleic acid synthesis, protein synthesis, and glycolysis and can bind with hemozoin in parasitized erythrocytes. Quinine is a white crystalline powder that darkens when exposed to light. Quinine Sulphate has a bitter taste and is odorless. It is also soluble in water, chloroform, alcohol, and ether. Quinine Sulphate is used to soften the taste of sugar and other flavors.

Growth Factors

Increasing tonic water consumption is fueling the demand for Quinine

Quinine sulphate is widely used to treat leg cramps, particularly in elderly patients, which drives the demand for Quinine sulphate in several countries. Quinine sulphate is also used in science as the chiral moiety for the ligands used for Sharpless asymmetric dihydroxylation, as well as for a variety of other chiral catalyst backbones that can propel the market.

Furthermore, Quinine sulphate is a substantially stable and well-known fluorescence quantum yield. It is used in photochemistry as a popular fluorescence standard, which can propel market growth. Quinine is used to flavor tonic water as well as bitter lemon drink mixers, which is projected to grow tremendously during 2022-2030. However, many countries, including the UK and the United Kingdom, have banned the use of Quinine sulphate to treat malaria, which may impede market growth.
