Market outlook of xylitol

Technavio’s research analyst predicts the global xylitol market to grow at a CAGR of around 7% during the forecast period. The global xylitol market is anticipated to grow at a moderate pace owing to the demand for safe, healthy, and economic sugar substitutes. Increasing health concerns regarding lifestyle diseases such as high cholesterol, cardiovascular issues, and obesity has raised consumer awareness regarding calorie intake that in turn has propelled the demand for xylitol in the market.

Despite being driven by the growing number of people with diabetes who choose natural sweeteners to maintain blood sugar levels, the market growth is anticipated to witness challenges due to the threat from substitute products. For instance, Sorbitol is 60% as sweet as table sugar and is less expensive compared to xylitol. Sorbitol is around 60% as sweet as table sugar and is less expensive compared to xylitol.
