Xylitol Global Market Outlook:

  • Global Polyol Supply (2019) 3.9 MMT
  • Global Xylitol Supply (2019) 0.223 MMT

Key Market Drivers

  • 11.4 percent rise in the US corn (feedstock) production
  • Vitamin C demand (projected CAGR until 2022: 5 percent)
  • Chewing gum demand (projected CAGR until 2020: 1.25 percent)

Porter's Analysis on Xylitol

Supplier Power

  • The feedstock is corn. The corn traders and farmers are the major suppliers
  • Polyol manufacturers, like Roquette, Cargill, and others, buy corn directly from grain elevators
  • The prices are fixed according to futures like, CBOT or current domestic prices
  • The suppliers do not have major power, since prices are fixed by the global supply–demand trend
  • Supplier power is moderate, as the demand for polyols also impacts negotiation

Barriers to New Entrants

  • Consolidation of the global suppliers is a major barrier to entry. Acquisitions and mergers are common in the industry
  • In addition, the global suppliers are actively setting up bases in regions, like China
  • Despite this, independent companies offer competition to the global suppliers
  • Barriers to entry are thus moderate

Intensity of Rivalry

  • The polyol supplier industry is consolidated by the global suppliers, who account for 64 percent of the market share
  • There is, however, competition from regional suppliers in China and other parts of Asia
  • The global suppliers consolidate shares by acquisitions or mergers
  • The presence of competition makes intensity of rivalry high

Threat of Substitutes

  • There is a threat of substitution for polyols, with substitutes, such as stevia, aspartame, and others. Sorbitol itself is a substitute for sugar
  • Sorbitol can be substituted by Xylitol, still it is not cost-effective to compete with sorbitol, but there exists growth potential, due to health benefits
  • The threat of substitutes is thus moderate

Buyer Power

  • The supplier market is fairly consolidated, and there are several competing end-use segments

  • Demand for polyols from several end- use sectors could offer bargaining leverage to the supplier

  • The presence of several regional suppliers could provide negotiation levers to the buyer

  • Buyer power is thus moderate
