Polyols, categorized as non-sugar carbohydrates, are potential sweeteners known for their reduced calorific value. Referred to as 'sugar replacers' or 'sugar alcohols' due to their chemical structure resembling sugar, polyol sweeteners offer fewer calories per gram compared to sugar, as per the Calorie Control Council. Currently, available polyol sweeteners encompass erythritol, isomalt, lactitol, maltitol syrups, maltitol, sorbitol, mannitol, and xylitol. This product serves as a beneficial "natural" ingredient in various applications, spanning the food, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and other technical and chemical industries. In the U.S., the global polyol sweeteners market is anticipated to grow rapidly, driven by increasing consumer demand for healthier and lower-calorie food products. Additionally, the product finds utility in the tobacco, textile, and paper industries, acting as a binder, bulking agent, humectant, and chemical reactant.

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly affected the polyol sweeteners market, impacting both the demand and supply dynamics of these products. Polyol sweeteners, widely used as sugar substitutes in various food and beverage categories like confectionery, bakery, and dairy items, have undergone a noticeable shift in consumer preferences during the pandemic. The primary impact of COVID-19 on the polyol sweeteners market has been the change in consumer choices towards healthier food alternatives. With increased health consciousness and a greater understanding of the adverse effects of excessive sugar intake, consumers are increasingly choosing sugar-free and low-calorie products, leading to a surge in demand for polyol sweeteners.

On the flip side, the pandemic has posed challenges to the supply chain of polyol sweeteners, with many manufacturers facing disruptions due to restrictions on the movement and transportation of goods. Some manufacturers experienced setbacks in their production and delivery schedules, further affecting the availability of polyol sweeteners. As an example, Ingredion Incorporated, a leading polyol sweetener manufacturer, reported a decline in its net sales in the second quarter of 2020, citing supply chain disruptions caused by the pandemic.

Polyol Swweteners Market Report Highlights

  • The Powder segment dominated the revenue share in 2022. Icing powder enriched with polyol sweeteners is utilized in the production of various food items, such as candies, chewing gums, and bakery goods. In its solid crystal state, this product is extensively incorporated as a constituent in pharmaceuticals. Anticipated to witness steady growth in the forecast period, the demand for powdered or crystallized sugar alcohols is driven by their convenient handling, ease of transportation and storage, and extended shelf life, thereby reducing the risk of spoilage. Powdered polyol sweeteners fulfill similar functions as their liquid counterparts and are commonly employed as bulking and coating agents in the production of nutraceuticals and functional foods.
  • The Food & Beverages segment commanded the highest market share throughout the forecast period. The anticipated growth in this segment in the coming years is attributed to the increasing demand for bulk sweeteners like mannitol, isomalt, and sorbitol in the production of dairy items, frozen desserts, fruit spreads, and baked goods. Polyol sweeteners, including isomalt, sorbitol, erythritol, lactitol, polyglycitols, and maltitol, have secured approval from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in food products, either as food additives or as Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) chemicals. Among them, mannitol holds interim food additive status, and xylitol is considered acceptable for use in special dietary foods.
  • In 2022, North America emerged as the leading market. The surge in demand for clean-label products and the rising preference for sugar-free food and beverages are propelling the growth of the polyol sweeteners market in the region.
