The global sorbitol market is projected to reach USD 1.42 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.3% from 2016 to 2021.

The sorbitol market has witnessed significant growth in the recent years. Features, such as sweetening flavor, non-cariogenic, cooling effect, free flowing powder, excellent compressibility and blend homogeneity, coating, low-calorie, and filler/diluent make sorbitol the most preferred compound used in various applications, such as cosmetic & personal care, pharmaceuticals, and others.

The main types of sorbitol are liquid/syrup sorbitol and crystal/powder sorbitol. Liquid/Syrup sorbitol type is estimated led the sorbitol market in 2016, due to the suitability of liquid/syrup in several applications. Not only highest, but also it is expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period, due to its increasing adoption in various day-to-day consumer applications as a low-calorie sugar substitute. The demand for liquid sorbitol is very high in all regions due to its ease of use and low manufacturing cost. On the other hand, powder sorbitol has limited applications in the food and pharmaceuticals industries.

The cosmetics & personal care segment led the global sorbitol market having accounted for a share of 39.5%, in terms of volume, in 2015.

Asia-Pacific is estimated to dominate the sorbitol market, owing to the rising demand for sorbitol, driven by its increased use in the cosmetic & personal care and food & beverages industries. Europe is the second-largest consumer of sorbitol, globally. Also, the increase in purchasing power parity of consumers also propels the demand for sorbitol-based products, such as confections, bakery, dairy, and other food products such as cereals and desserts
