    Market Insights

    The sorbitol market is likely to grow at a promising CAGR of 5.5% in the long run to reach US$ 2.1 Billion in 2028. 

    Sorbitol is a sugar alcohol and is identified as a potential key chemical intermediate from biomass resources. It is employed in a number of sectors, including food and beverage, medicines, cosmetics, and personal care, as a sweetener, humectant, sequestrant, texturizer, stabilizer, and bulking agent. It varies according to the application fields, with the food business using it mostly as a preservative, additive, and sweetener; the pharmaceutical sector uses it as a carrier; and the cosmetics industry uses it to stabilize emulsions.

    The growth of the sorbitol market is being driven by an increase in health-conscious consumers, an increase in diabetes cases, and a rise in demand for processed foods and sweets. Diabetes now affects 422 million people worldwide, up from 108 million in 1980, according to the WHO. Additionally, it was discovered that the prevalence of diabetes has been increasing more quickly in middle- and low-income nations, which is expected to increase demand for sorbitol as a lower-calorie substitute for sugar.

    Product Type

    The sorbitol market is segmented into liquid/syrupy and powder/crystal, Liquid form is expected to remain the largest and fastest-growing product type in the market during the forecast period due to improvements in the manufacturing process, simplicity of usage, and low manufacturing costs. A sugar-free sweetener called crystalline sorbitol is largely utilized in the manufacture of sugarless gum, candies, specialty foods, and medications. Demand for sorbitol in its crystalline and liquid forms is anticipated to rise, which will eventually drive the market's expansion.

    Application Type

    The market is segmented into food & beverages, personal care & cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and others. Sorbitol, a nutritive sweetener with 2.4–2.6 kilocalories of nutritional energy per gram, is most commonly used in the food and beverage industry. It is well-known for giving the food products for which it is used a sweet, cold, and pleasant flavor.

    Using sorbitol's sweetening, texturizing, moisturizing, and softening properties, food producers and processors are enhancing the overall organoleptic character of processed foods. In addition to being a sweetener, this sugar alcohol also has key functional properties such as humectant action, bodying agent, and crystallization inhibitor. Additionally, xylitol and its derivatives are increasingly used to have synergistic benefits. It is extensively used in flavor concentrates, chewing gum, icings and toppings, beverages, and specialty foods for those with dietary restrictions.
