Sugar Alcohols Market to Cross US$ 1.4 Bn by 2026

Global Market Study on Sugar Alcohols: Sorbitol to
Register Highest Revenue Growth During 2017 - 2026
Increasing epidemic of diabetes and obesity has driven the awareness of
consumers towards sweet foods and beverages, wherein the demand for
products containing artificial sweeteners is dwindling rapidly. In order to add
the sweet taste to food products, companies are increasing the use of natural
compounds such as sugar alcohols. Food regulatory bodies in different
countries are acting as proponents for the growing use of sugar alcohols. In
addition, scientific studies have dubbed sugar alcohols as nutritive sweeteners,
which can not only regulate the metabolism of a diabetic person, but also lower
the blood sugar responses.
However, companies partaking in the global sugar alcohol market are faced by
a slew of challenges, particularly associated with the production of sugar
alcohols. Procuring raw ingredients and edible alcohols at feasible costs has
become a key concern for companies producing sugar alcohols. Moreover, the
global sugar alcohol landscape is witnessing more complexities in the supply
chain, particularly with respect to storage of sugar alcohols. According to a
recently published forecast study by Persistence Market Research, the global
sugar alcohol market is pegged to expand at a sluggish pace, registering an
estimated 2.1% CAGR during the forecast period, 2017-2026. The report
further assesses that by the end of this period, the global market for sugar
alcohols will reach a value of nearly US$ 1.4 Bn.

Demand for Sugar Alcohols to Remain Concentered in the APEJ Region
The study has projected that the Asia-Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) region
will register highest sales of sugar alcohols in the foreseeable future. In 2017,
the APEJ sugar alcohol market has been estimated to have reached value of
nearly US$ 500 Mn. Procurement of raw ingredients in countries such as China
and India remains relatively easy, which is compelling manufacturers to extend
their production bases in the APEJ region. The region will remain lucrative in
the production and sales of sugar alcohols, primarily due to the flourishing food
and beverage sector, high presence of diabetics, and an overall vast consumer
base. The report further reveals that Europe and North America will be among
the leading consumer marketplaces for sugar alcohols through 2026.
Sorbitol to Witness Highest Revenue Growth through 2026
In 2017 and beyond, sorbitol is poised to register highest sales in the global
sugar alcohol market. Representing the fastest top-selling product in the global
sugar alcohol market, sorbitol is estimated to bring in more than US$ 550 Mn in
global revenues by the end of 2026. While consumption of sorbitol does cause
gastrointestinal distress, consumers are expected to continue preferring it for
being far less harmful than artificial sweeteners. The report further reveals that
sugar alcohols will be predominantly used in the food & beverage industry. By
the end of 2026, sugar alcohols sold across the global food & beverage industry
are expected to bring in US$ 1 Bn.
