Global Sorbitol Market Outlook

The global sorbitol market attained a volume of about 2.4 million metric tons in 2017. Increasing awareness towards health has led to a greater demand for low-calorie foods which has in turn contributed to a steady growth of the global sorbitol market over the past few years. During the forecasted period of 2019-2024, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 2.3% owing to a multitude of sorbitol applications across several types of industries.

Global Sorbitol Market Report and Forecast 2019-2024

Although a number of feedstocks can be used for making sorbitol, the choice of feedstock mainly depends upon the total cost of production and the ease of availability in the region. Corn, Cassava and Wheat represent the most popular feedstock for sorbitol production.

Sorbitol: Properties and Applications

Sorbitol, a six-carbon sugar alcohol, occurs in plants naturally. It can also be synthesized through catalytic hydrogenation of D-glucose to produce D-sorbitol.

Sorbitol has non-cariogenic and sweetening properties due to which it is used in toothpaste and oral care products, beverages, ice-creams, jams, syrups, candies, jellies, etc. It is also used as laxative.

Several other applications include:

  • Leather
  • Paper
  • Textiles
  • Chemicals
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Cosmetics and Personal care
  • Agriculture
  • Animal feed
  • Poultry

By Application:

Figure2: Global Sorbitol Market Breakup by Application

China was the greatest consumer of sorbitol with almost 40% of the world’s total consumption in 2016.

Asia Pacific remained the largest market for sorbitol in 2016 with more than half of the global market share and is likely to maintain this position in years to come due to favourable government policies and greater FDI flows for pharmaceutical and personal care firms in India and China.

Market for sorbitol in North America and Europe is anticipated to exhibit steady growth in the forecasted years due to the growing home & personal care and food & beverage industry in the region followed by economies such as India, Thailand and Indonesia.

Inconsistencies in price and supply of raw materials, side-effects due to over consumption of sorbitol and international regulations are factors that may hinder growth of sorbitol market.  A detailed market analysis including the price movement and regional market scenario of the sorbitol feedstock such as corn, cassava, wheat, etc. is offered in this report.
