This market research study identifies Archer Daniels Midland, Cargill, Ingredion, Roquette, and Tereos as the leading players in the global sorbitol market. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by type (liquid and crystal), by end-user (cosmetics and personal care, food and beverages, chemicals and pharmaceuticals, and others), and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global sorbitol market

When the pancreas fails to produce enough insulin in the body, the body develops chronic diseases such as diabetes. It results in high blood pressure, fatigue-related problems, dehydration, and eating disorders. The number of diabetes patients is also increasing around the globe, which in turn, will propel the amount spent on treatments for diabetes every year. Research analysis on the global sorbitol market identifies that the increasing rate of diabetic problems will be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of the market. It is estimated that in 2016, approximately USD 690 billion was spent on treating diabetes on a global level and this will reach USD 720 billion by 2040. Consequently, people in many countries of APAC and the Americas are forced to purchase low sugar level foods that contain sugar alcohol such as sorbitol. This in turn, will drive the demand for sorbitol in foods and beverages and pharmaceutical applications. Technavio's market research analysts predict that the glucitol market will grow at a CAGR of more than 5% by 2021.

The high demand for cosmetics, personal care products, and chemicals in APAC resulted in an increased consumption of sorbitol during 2016. The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, and Myanmar are the potential markets for cosmetics in this region. This will drive the demand for sorbitol from APAC in the coming years.

Segmentation by type and analysis of the sorbitol market

  • Liquid
  • Crystal

The manufacture of liquid sorbitol involves the hydrogenation of dextrose, that is derived from starch hydrolysate saccharification. The demand for sorbitol liquid is high when compared to crystal sorbitol because they bind the water molecules and stabilize the mass, which prevents hardness, cracks, and dryness. This in turn, propels their adoption in cosmetics and personal care and food and beverages.

  • Cosmetics and personal care
  • Food and beverages
