Despite its Increasing Prices, Corn to Remain China’s Most Popular Feedstock for Manufacturing SorbitolDespite the prices of corn increasing at a CAGR of 18% over the last two years, the reportexpects corn to remain the most popular feedstock for sorbitol production in China.IMARC Group, one of the world’s leading research and advisory firms, finds that the totalproduction of sorbitol in China is expected to exceed volumes worth 1 million metric tons by2017. Estimates from their latest report entitled “Global Sorbitol (Glucitol) Market Report& Forecast: Market Size, Share, Growth, Production Capacity, Price, Applications,Feedstocks, Manufacturers and Forecast: 2013-2017” suggests that China is the world’slargest market for sorbitol with both production as well as the demand expected to grow attwice the rate of global growth.The report found that corn, wheat and cassava were the main feedstocks used for theproduction of sorbitol in China. Despite the prices of corn increasing at a CAGR of 18% overthe last two years, the report expects corn to remain the most popular feedstock for sorbitolproduction in China. In 2012, corn accounted for more than 80% of the total sorbitolproduction in the country.The report entitled “Global Sorbitol (Glucitol) Market Report & Forecast: Market Size,Share, Growth, Production Capacity, Price, Applications, Feedstocks, Manufacturersand Forecast: 2013-2017” provides an analytical and statistical insight into the globalsorbitol market.
