Market Outlook 2021-2026

The sorbitol market in India reached a volume of 165 Kilotons in 2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to exhibit stable growth during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end-use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Sorbitol, also known as glucitol, is a sugar alcohol which is found in several fresh fruits and berries. It can also be produced industrially by the hydrogenation of glucose. It is lower in calories than sucrose; has exceptional stabilising and texturizing properties; and does not contribute to tooth decay. Owing to these properties, it is extensively used in a wide variety of food products, including sugar-free candies, chewing gums, and foods such as frozen desserts and baked goods. Apart from this, it also finds applications in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries.

In the pharmaceutical sector, sorbitol is used as a preliminary material for ascorbic acid tablets, and in cough syrups for its sweetening properties. It is also used as a laxative since it helps in stimulating bowel movements. Some of its other applications are in the toothpaste, food and confectioneries, and industrial surfactant sectors. Diverse applications of sorbitol represent one of the primary factors that has added to its overall demand. Increase in the cases of diabetes in India remains another force catalysing the market growth. Other growth inducing factors are rising population, elevating incomes and increasing health consciousness in the country.
