Indian Sorbitol Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024

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. According to IMARC Group’s latest report titled, “Indian Sorbitol Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024”, the sorbitol market in India reached a volume of 158 Kilotons in 2018, growing at a CAGR of more than 5% during 2011-2018.

Indian Sorbitol Market Report

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. According to the report, the market is further expected to reach a volume of 189 Kilotons by 2024.

The report has segmented the Indian sorbitol market on the basis of type, covering crystal sorbitol and liquid sorbitol. Currently, liquid sorbitol accounts for the majority of the consumption in the region.
