San Jose, California (PRWEB) July 24, 2014
Follow us on LinkedIn – The market for sugar alcohols, commonly known as food polyols, is driven by increasing demand from pharmaceuticals, food and confectionery sectors. Rising incidence of obesity, growing awareness over the benefits of consuming alternate sweeteners, and rapidly aging population vulnerable to diabetes are some of the key factors driving growth in the sugar alcohols market. With growing number of scientific studies validating the health benefits of sweeteners, consumer adoption is on the rise. Apart from serving as effective substitutes to sugar, polyols have inherent taste and flavor benefits that enable food manufacturers to produce healthy products with taste and flavor comparable to full-fat foods.
Sorbitol, the most widely used sugar alcohol, is gaining popularity in a number of end-use industries. Demand for this polyol is expected to be driven by robust opportunities in developing markets, use in a diverse range of applications, growing health awareness, and rising demand for low-calorie products. Sorbitol is extensively used as an ingredient in the manufacture of food and confectionary, personal care products, as well as for manufacturing vitamin C. Sorbitol consumption in developing markets is expected to witness rapid growth, and a major portion of this growth is projected to come from food and confectionary, and personal care products.
As stated by the new market research report on Sugar Alcohols, Asia-Pacific represents the largest and the fastest growing market worldwide with a CAGR of 6.0% over the analysis period. Growing focus on leading an active and healthy life, high prevalence of diabetes and obesity, rising disposable income levels, and increased consumption of convenience food represent key factors driving growth in the region. Food & Confectionery is the largest and the fastest growing end-use market for sugar alcohols. Growing global trends in snacking and healthy eating are poised to significantly spur future sales of polyols in the sector. Polyols are also finding application in mouthwashes, throat lozenges, and toothpastes. Of special note is the oral care market where a vast number of research studies have been conducted to confirm the role of polyols in preventing tooth decay.
