Rise in demand for polyol sweeteners in low-calorie food products is expected to drive the polyol sweeteners market till 2022

Polyol sweeteners, also known as sugar alcohols, are ingredients used as sweeteners, sugar replacers, and bulking agents in various food preparations. Some common polyol sweeteners used in the food industry include sorbitol, mannitol, erythritol, lactitol, xylitol, isomalt, and maltitol. These occur naturally in a wide range of fruits and vegetables; but are produced commercially from other sources such as starch, glucose, and sucrose.  

Food & beverage manufacturers have been innovating their product offerings to meet the changing consumer tastes and functional requirements such as low calorie and similar sweetness. The demand for low-calorie food products for people suffering from diabetes fuels the demand for polyol sweeteners. Consumers prefer to consume less sugar or sugar-free products, which has increased the demand for sorbitol in the food & beverage application. The growing health concerns and the increase in the purchasing power parity of consumers also propel the demand for polyol sweetener-based products, such as bakery, confections, dairy, and other food products such as cereals and desserts.

The market for polyol sweeteners is projected to reach USD 3.29 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period. The growth of this market is driven mainly by the rise in the consumption of low-calorie and healthier food & beverage products. The demand for low-calorie food items in various segments of the food service industry has triggered the growth of the artificial sweeteners market, which has helped to reduce the occurrences of obesity and heart-related diseases among consumers. Thus, we can conclude that the market for polyol sweeteners will be driven by the demand for healthier foods.

Higher cost of production of food & beverage products with polyol sweeteners compared to sugar

The popularity of polyol sweeteners has grown in the past due to increased health consciousness among consumers. However, there is a rising cost of production involved in their usage as a sugar substitute, which limits their adoption in the industry. The price of polyol sweeteners is much higher than sugar, due to expensive technology required for extractions. The price is also elevated due to high cost of raw material and labour.

In various food industries such as bakery, confectionery, and dairy, the sweeteners are used in bulk quantities. As a sugar substitute, polyol sweeteners tend to increase the cost of the end product significantly. This has discouraged the adoption of polyols in various food products that are consumed daily by the consumers. The labeling of products made with polyol sweeteners as “sugar–free” and “premium”, is the only option to market these products, which limits their applicability, thereby restricting their consumer base.

EU: Dominant Region in Polyol Sweeteners Market

Polyol Sweeteners Market

Europe is the dominant region in the polyol sweeteners market. This region is estimated to account for more than one-third of the global market in 2016 in terms of value. Some factors that influence their share in the market include increasing awareness about benefits of polyol sweeteners, demand for low-calorie foods, and rising demands for balanced nutrition and low calories.

Market Dynamics

Polyol Sweeteners Market

Leading food & beverage manufacturers are developing sustainable and innovative solutions for existing and new applications to drive the industry forward  

Sorbitol Increasing demand in a wide range of applications

Sorbitol is a white, water-soluble six-carbon sugar alcohol (polyol) that is mainly derived from corn, seaweed, fruits, and berries. It is manufactured by catalytic hydrogenation of sucrose. It is also known as D-sorbitol, D-glucitol, glucitol, sorbol, and sorbit.

Sorbitol is primarily used as a sweetener, humectant, flavoring agent, and diuretic dehydrating agent in various applications such as food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics and personal care products. It provides dietary energy, and is around 60% as sweet as sugar. It is often used for retention of moisture in products, bulk sweeteners, and ingredients in diet foods (diet drinks, sugar-free sweets, and ice creams with no added sugar), mints, cough syrups, and sugar-free chewing gum.

Rising consumer awareness regarding low-calorie and healthy food, along with increasing health issues due to consumption of sugar, are the major factors driving the demand for sorbitol. The growing cosmetics and personal care industry is also expected to fuel the demand for sorbitol.

Polyol Sweeteners Market

Erythritol Widely used as a sugar substitute

Erythritol is widely used as a sugar substitute, because it has sensory characteristics and taste similar to sugar; but has almost no calorie content. It is available in powder and granular forms in the market. Erythritol is approved for use as a food ingredient in many other countries including the US, Germany, the UK, France, Brazil, Mexico, Canada, and Japan. It is used in the production of food & beverage products; however, it is usually combined with other sweeteners to achieve the desired texture and sweetness. It is heat-stable, and can be used for domestic cooking applications as well.

Maltitol: Synthetic sugar sweetener

Maltitol is a polyol sweetener with characteristics very similar to that of sugar, but has low calorie content. It is about 90% as sweet as sugar, and is similar to other polyol sweeteners such as mannitol and xylitol. It is widely used as a sugar substitute in many processed food & beverage products. For instance, the chocolates that are termed as 'sugar-free' are often made using maltitol. Maltitol is used in pharmaceutical applications as an ingredient in moisturizing products, and is also used to maintain moisture in the processed food products. It is less hygroscopic compared to sugar, due to which it is used as a coating material in making of hard candies and hard-coated chewing gums.

Isomalt: Majorly used in bakery and confectionery products

Isomalt is an artificial polyol sweetener; it provides good flavor with a slight aftertaste. It is synthesized from sucrose. It is resistant to crystallization, and is more malleable compared to sugar, which makes it suitable for sugar artists and confectioners. It can be stretched, rolled, and molded, which makes it useful for making cake decorations and garnishes as well. The demand for isomalt is rising due to increasing consumption of bakery and confectionery products, globally. Asia Pacific offers significant opportunities for isomalt manufacturers, as the preference of consumers toward Western food habits is increasing in economies such as China and India, which leads to a rising demand for bakery and confectionery products.

Xylitol: Naturally-occurring sugar alcohol

Xylitol is a naturally-occurring sugar alcohol found in many plant materials, including fruits and vegetables. It can be extracted from various oats, berries, and mushrooms, and can also be produced by fermenting xylose in corn husks and sugarcane bagasse with yeast. Xylitol is widely consumed as a sugar substitute in "sugar-free" mints, chewing gums, and other confectionery products. It is also used as a substitute of sugar in many bakery products as well as beverages such as tea and coffee. The major driver of growth of the xylitol market is the rising diabetic population across the globe. Attributing to the growing health concerns among consumers, the use of low-calorie sweeteners is likely to increase in food products for diabetic people and consumers focusing on weight loss.

Other types of sweeteners

The other types of polyol sweeteners include mannitol and lactitol. Mannitol is a sugar alcohol used widely in pharmaceutical and food industries. It is a non-carcinogenic, low-calorie sweetener, and is approximately 50% as sweet as sucrose. Lactitol is manufactured from whey, is slightly less sweet than sugar, and contains 2 calories per gram. It is used in a wide range of sugar-free foods, baked foods, and frozen dairy desserts. The major factor that drives this particular market segment is the demand from consumers for confectionery products.

The global polyol sweeteners market has grown steadily in the last few years. The market size is projected to reach USD 3.30 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.9% from 2017 to 2022. The growth in demand for low-calorie and healthier food & beverage products is the major driving factor of this market.

In the form segment, the global market has been segmented on the basis of powder/crystal and liquid/syrup. Liquid polyol sweeteners are most widely used by manufacturers compared to other forms, since liquid polyol sweeteners are cost-effective as they require lesser processing cost and time in comparison with powdered polyol sweeteners; hence, the liquid/syrup segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The liquid form is largely used in the production of oral care products, food & beverages, and pharmaceutical products.

On the basis of type, the global market is segmented by sorbitol, maltitol, erythritol, xylitol, isomalt, and others. The sorbitol segment accounted for the highest market share in 2016. It is primarily used as a sweetener, humectant, flavoring agent, and diuretic dehydrating agent for various applications such as food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics & personal care products. It provides dietary energy and around 60% sweetness as against sugar. Sorbitol is also found naturally in several stone fruits and berries from trees of the genus, Sorbus. It acts as a sugar substitute or food additive that imitates regular sugar in taste.

The global market, by function, is segmented into flavoring & sweetening agents, bulking agent, excipients, humectants, and others. Polyol sweeteners have been gaining popularity as excipients in pharmaceutical applications. An excipient is a substance used along with active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) in pharmaceutical products. They are preferred due to their sweetness and tooth-friendliness, especially in formulations such as lozenges or chewable tablets.

The polyol sweeteners market in Europe accounted for the largest share, whereas the market in Asia-Pacific is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The major driver for the growth of this market in the Asia-Pacific region is rise in awareness regarding functionalities & applications of polyol sweeteners.

New product launches and expansions are the key strategies adopted by these players to ensure their growth in the market. The market is dominated by players such as Cargill (U.S.), E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company (U.S.), Archer Daniels Midland Company (U.S.), and Roquette Frčres S.A. (France).
