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 this research’s latest report titled, “Indian Sorbitol Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023”, the sorbitol market in India reached a volume of 166 Thousand Metric Tons in 2017, growing at a CAGR of nearly 3.4% during 2010-2017.

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 187 Thousand Metric Tons by 2023.
