Based on production, Asia- pacific is expected to lead the global sorbitol industry, as it is one the fastest growing consumers of sorbitol. India and China are the fastest consumer of sorbitol because of the rising demand, and its increased use in the cosmetic & personal care, and food & beverages industries. Europe is the second-largest consumer of sorbitol, globally, which is expected to witness a sluggish growth rate of 2.6% owing to slow growth of pharmaceutical companies in the countries such as Italy, Spain and France.
