The global isosorbide market size is expected to reach USD 703.1 million by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., registering a CAGR of 8.5% during the forecast period. Rising health and environmental concerns regarding use of synthetic products, such as petroleum derived products, is estimated to fuel demand over the coming years.
Rising capacity of bio-based plastics in Asia Pacific, strong regulatory support for bio-based products, and stable demand from additives industry are the factors estimated to boost product demand in future. However, isosorbide made from starch is an eco-friendly option to synthetic polymers and this is a key trend estimated to continue influencing demand over the next few years.
Traditionally, Asia Pacific emerged as a dominant regional market owing to low raw material and labor cost. In addition, growing focus of the chemical industry on bio-based products is estimated to fuel market growth over the forecast period. Moreover, isosorbide has been identified as an emerging bio-based platform chemical by the U.S. Department of Energy.
Major chemical companies such as Mitsubishi Chemicals and SK Chemicals have been focusing on production of polymers based on isosorbide. Further, market players are concentrating on expansion of business across the globe to gain high market share in the global industry. Extensive R&D in the field and requirement to develop product differentiation leads to high levels of competition in the market.
