Naturally, xylitol occurs in most plants such as vegetables and fruits. At present, xylitol is commercially extracted from corn bobs and birch wood, and numerous techniques of extracting xylitol from other hemicelluloses are currently being developed. Xylitol is extensively used as a sugar substitute. During the past several years, the interest in xylitol has increased considerably due to numerous commercial applications including, among others, pharmaceuticals, dental related products and food.
Spurred by the rising weight and health conscious consumers, xylitol demand is predicted to grow in low-calorie and sugar-free products. In 2013, the volume of the world xylitol market stood at 161,500 tonnes, whilst the market value was around USD 670 million. By 2020, the world xylitol market volume and value are forecast to reach 242,000 tonnes and USD 1 billion, registering robust CAGRs of more than 6%. By 2020, the chewing gun industry is anticipated to consume nearly 163,000 tonnes of xylitol, remaining the major consumer with a share of 67% in the overall xylitol consumption volume.
