Global Isomalt Market: Snapshot

Isomalt, a sugar substitute, has an attractive sweetness profile. The low-hygroscopic substance can be combined with high-intensity sweetener such as sucralose to achieve a sweetener profile tailored to the need of end-use products. For instance, isomalt has gathered steam in cake decoration. The key reason for this that isomalt doesn’t caramelize due to heat unlike normal sugar. Further, it can be molded in various shapes and can withstand high heat. Isomalt has lent freedom to bakers to design exquisite design elements. Isomalt has also been successful in masking the bitter aftertaste of some high-intensity artificial sweeteners. There are several other properties that make isomalt increasingly attractive among food manufacturers. For instance, isomalt resists degradation caused by acidic and enzymatic hydrolysis. Moreover, it doesn’t provide any substrate for food microorganisms to thrive on, thus making its use as healthier option. Furthermore, isomalt can easily blend with any flavor. The rising demand for isomalt products among home bakers is also boosting the market.

Rising demand for healthier options for people who experience sugar craving is a key factor bolstering the growth of the isomalt market. The use of isomalt in sugacrafting has also accentuated the market. Growing demand for polyols in food manufacturing processes also augurs well for the isomalt market. Isomalt are approved for use in Australia, Europe, and Russia, and a few economies of Asia Pacific notably India, China, and Japan. However, some people have increased sensitivity to sugar alcohols, which makes the safety profile of isomalt a concern in these consumers. Nevertheless, relentless research to improve the safety profile of isomalt bodes well for the market.

Global Isomalt Market: Overview

Isomalt, a type of sugar alcohol and bulk sweetener, has gained popularity as sugar substitute among worldwide consumers on account of the purported health benefits they have. The sugar-free sweetener is derived from natural sources such as sugar beets and is manufactured in a two-stage process. Its texture and physical properties closely those of sugar, but has negligible impact on blood sugar. The remarkable stability of isomalt has led it to be used for making a variety of food and beverages such as hard candies, chewing gum, chocolates, and baked goods. In food products where adding sweetness is not the sole purpose, isomalt is increasingly being demanded in making nutritional supplements, throat lozenges, and tooth paste. Its consumption expands the varied food choices of health-conscious populations, especially by meeting the demand for low-calories food and beverage products world over.

Global Isomalt Market: Key Trends

The substantial industrial demand for sugar substitutes with large health benefits is a key factor driving the demand for isomalt. The growing demand for isomalt and isomalt-based food supplements among people suffering with lifestyle diseases such as diabetes and obesity is propelling the growth of the market. The several benefits it offers in relation to calories and glycemic index are underpinning the popularity of this sugar alcohol. In addition, since it is non-hygroscopic it retains its stability in moisture conditions, hence bolstering its demand for making candies and chewing gums. Despite all the health benefits, since it is sugar alcohol its indiscriminate consumption may increase the risk of intestinal upset such as flatulence, bloating, and diarrhea. The growth of the isomalt market is also plagued with few setbacks. For instance, the presence of a large number of sugar substitutes with comparable pricing is hindering the overall expansion. The high prices may also act as bottleneck for its demand.

Global Isomalt Market: Market Potential

Some features of isomalt make it highly sought after by researchers. The sugar alcohol is water-soluble, biodegradable which has rendered it be as promising candidate for making 3D printed scaffolds. A study by engineers at the University of Illinois exploring the potential of isomalt in bioprinting and microfluidics found it be potentially useful as dissolvable for printing tissue or study tumors in the laboratory. The researchers used free-form 3D printing technique to 3D print isomalt by using a special printer. The use of this advanced technique helps in controlling the mechanical properties of the scaffold with great precision by slightly changing 3D printer parameters. The team of researchers hopes to use isomalt scaffold for making microfluidic devices and cell cultures. The research is supported by Wolfram Research which equips the team with the required computer science capabilities.  The work is expected to pave way for new avenues for biological research using complicated 3D scaffold.

Global Isomalt Market: Regional Outlook

The reports takes a closer look at the prevailing regulatory landscape and lucrative avenues in key regions. On the regional front, Europe is likely to emerge as potentially lucrative market for isomalt. This is attributed to the marked presence of several large isomalt manufacturers and producers. Numerous market players are also capitalizing on the considerable expertise food producers in the region possess in making sugar. The abundant supply of key raw material for making isomalt in some regional markets may make them prominent. In this regard, North America is contributing substantial share of revenue in the global market as the region has significant supply of sugar beets. Meanwhile Asia Pacific is also expected to rise at a prominent pace, driven by burgeoning production of isomalt in its key economies.
