Sorbitol (also known as Glucitol) is a sugar alcohol or polyol. It was originally identified in the berries of a tree called the mountain ash, by a French chemist in 1872 and is presently produced commercially by the hydrogenation of glucose. Sorbitol currently represents the world's most consumed polyol and finds applications across various industries. It is widely used in the production of toothpastes, toiletries, cosmetics, confectionaries, sweets, frozen desserts, biscuits, ascorbic acid, industrial surfactants, pharmaceuticals, healthcare products, etc.

The global demand of Sorbitol is currently growing at 2%-3% annually and reached more than 2.5 Million Meteric Tons in 2018 with China being the world's largest consumer. China was followed by the United States and Western Europe. The feedstocks used to produce sorbitol can differ from region to region with corn, cassava and wheat currently being the three main feedstocks used for sorbitol production. The market is also quite concentrated in nature with the top 5 players presently accounting for more than 50% of the total global production capacity. Roquette, a French company is currently the world's biggest producer of Sorbitol.
