Global xylitol markets were valued at USD 447.88 millions in 2020. They are expected to grow at a 6.4% compound annual growth rate (CAGR), from 2020-2028. The market's key driver is expected to be the growing demand for xylitol for food and nutraceutical purposes over the forecast period. The natural sweetener xylitol, which is low-calorie and crystallized, can be found in fibrous plants foods and hardwood trees. It has the highest sweetness level compared to sucrose. It can be made from plant polysaccharides by either chemical or enzymatic hydrolysis. It is mostly produced by a chemical process on an industrial scale that is based upon catalyticxylose dehydrogenation. Due to the high-pressure hydrogen gas and toxic catalyst, this process is both costly and energy-intensive.
Due to growing interest in low-calorie food and ingredients, the U.S. will see a rise in product demand during the forecast period. The U.S. market is also seeing a rise in awareness of natural products that can play a crucial role in general health management. The United States is one of the top producing countries for xylitol. To strengthen their market position in the U.S., the producers have targeted various possible application industries such as nutraceutical, cosmetics, and personal care.
Different microorganisms such as yeast, bacteria, or fungi can be used in the enzymatic process. This helps to create a sustainable environment. It is a low-glycemic sweetener and can be used in food products such as confectionery, bakery, drinks and dairy products, as well as the nutraceutical, pharmaceutical, and nutraceutical industries. Corn cobs, birch barks and other raw materials are the most common for commercial production of xylose. Corn cobs are cheaper to produce xylose, so the cost of xylitol from corn cobs is lower than the one from birch trees.
Hydrolysis of corn cob biomass requires hydrogen chloric acid, whereas hydrolysis for birch bark needs sulfuric acid. The corn cob-derived Xylitol is pharmaceutical-grade. This standard is rigorously checked for compliance. Birch bark-sourced products are considered food-grade. North American manufacturers focus on birch bark because of the abundance of birch trees. China's corn cobs are a major source of xylan for producers.
The market can be divided into liquid and powder forms. With a more than 90% revenue share, the powder form segment led global xylitol markets in 2020. Powder form is highly sought after due to its versatility and ease of handling, storage, and availability.
Because of its durability, the powder is used to make chewing gums as well as anhydrous dietary supplement. The powder form has a lower or no water content, which increases shelf life. The liquid form segment, on the other hand will experience the fastest CAGR between 2020 and 2028 due to its low cost.
From 2020 to 2028, the oral care segment will experience 6.8% growth. The oral care application segment is expected to grow at 6.8% between 2020 and 2028. It reduces dental caries through increased salivary flow, pH, inhibiting the growth of harmful bacteria and reducing tooth erosion, inflammation, plaque and swelling. These factors are expected to drive the dental care segment to grow significantly over the forecast period.
Xylitol is 40% less caloric than regular sugar. A teaspoonful of sugar has 16 calories, while a teaspoonful of xylitol has 9.6 calories. Because of its cooling properties, it is often used in chewing gum manufacturing. There are many options for chewing gums. These include mints, lozenges and candies that contain xylitol. It is also used in baking items, sauces and condiments, pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, and pharmaceuticals.
Asia Pacific accounted for more than 39% of the global market's revenue in 2020. China is the largest producer of xylitol. However, Thailand, India and China are the top xylitol consumers in the region. It is a versatile natural sweetener that is used widely in chewing gums and nutraceuticals as well as diabetic foods. China is the world's largest exporter. China's top export destinations are the U.S., Europe and India.
Europe will experience the fastest CAGR at 7.0% during the forecast period. Finland is a major producer in Europe's regional market. Most of the Finnish xylitol is exported to neighboring European countries. Over the forecast period, Europe's market growth will be boosted by the increasing demand for low-calorie food products from the region's health-conscious customers.
