The major driving factor for this market is rapidly increasing utilization of isosorbide in polymers and elastomers as farm fodder additives. Growing bio-based plastics manufacturing capacity especially in Asian countries is also expected to have positive impact on growth of isosorbide market. However, the food and fuel dispute for raw materials such as maize and wheat are predicted to hamper the growth of this industry. Furthermore, huge unexploited market for healthcare and medical industry is expected to put forward growth opportunities to the isosorbide manufacturers.
PEIT (Polyethylene Isosorbide Terephthate) applications segment was the largest segment of global isosorbide industry and accounted for around 35% share of the entire market in 2014. PEIT with being the biggest application sector is also expected to be the fastest growing segment for isosorbide market. It is expected to grow at strong CAGR of around 20% from 2015 to 2020. Polycarbonate, isosorbide diesters and polyurethane application segments are expected to exhibit moderate growth over the forecast period. This is attributed to consistent efforts in research and development activities for isosorbide applications.
