Asia Pacific sorbitol market size was estimated over USD 650 million in 2015. North America and Europe are likely to witness moderate growth rates over the forecast period.

This report analyses sorbitol market downstream potential, which is an important building block for commodity chemical such as isosorbide, propylene glycol (1, 2-propanediol), lactic acid, 2, 5-anhydrosugars and 1, 4-sorbitan. One of the largest industrial applications is for production of vitamin c (Ascorbic Acid).

It is obtained from hydrogenation of glucose and the current commercialization processes are based on batch technology with use of Raney nickel as a catalyst. Industry prefers batch technology for ensuring complete conversion of glucose as one of the major applications is into food & beverages with stringent requirements with amount of reducing sugars in the product.
