In 2018, India was also the leading importer of the substance, globally. The country is seeking to decrease its imports by increasing the domestic production of the polyol. Japan is also a significant global importer of the substance. The Asia Pacific is followed by the EU and North America as the other significant regions in the industry. They represent 20-30% of the global mannitol market. The United States of America and Italy are the major exporters of the polyol. The US is also the leading importer of the substance. Germany is a significant global importer of mannitol.

While mannitol faces competition from other polyols like sorbitol and xylitol, its demand, globally, has witnessed a stable growth. Its export demand is being driven by its application in the pharmaceutical industry. It also finds extensive application as a food additive. Pharmaceuticals and food additives, together, account for over 65% of the mannitol applications. Since, compared to sucrose, it contributes to a much lower hike in blood glucose, it is finding growing use in food products meant for diabetic patients. The growing cases of diabetes and obesity are leading to people seeking out healthier food options, further aiding the global mannitol market.

Properties and Applications

  • Others

The report also provides an overview of the other regional markets like North America, LATAM, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and the Asia Pacific.

Market Drivers

The global mannitol market is being driven by its rising demand as a food additive. The increase in the cases of diabetes is also aiding the industry for the polyol as it does not excessively increase the blood glucose level, and thus, finds extensive application as a sweetener for people with diabetes. The rising health consciousness among the consumers is also propelling the global mannitol market forward as it is a low calorie and non-cariogenic additive. The industry is being driven by its expanding end-use applications in the confectionery section. It is increasingly used in mint-based candies and gums because of its cooling effect. Due to its low hygroscopicity, leading to low absorption of water from air, it is extensively used as a coating in dried fruits, hard candies, and chewing gums. Additionally, due to its pleasant taste and mouthfeel, it is also finding rising application in chewable tablets.

The pharmaceutical sector is one of the fastest-growing application sectors for mannitol. The industry is driving the growth in the global demand for the polyol. It is used as an excipient in the formation of tablets. It is also finding uses as a diuretic and is finding rising applications in the treatment of renal failure, along with heart and lung diseases. The rapid urbanisation, along with a rise in the middle-class population is aiding the industry as the consumption patterns are changing with processed foods witnessing an increase in their consumption levels. The global mannitol market is also finding impetus for its growth in the technological advancements taking place in the industry, which are seeking to reduce the manufacturing cost. In the coming years, rising innovations in the sector will further propel the industry forward. It is expected to witness a steady demand as its applications are seeing an expansion.
