According to the latest report by IMARC Group, the global polyols market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020. Looking forward, the market expects to grow at a CAGR of around 5% during 2021-2026.
Polyols, or sugar alcohols, are a group of organic compounds that are utilized in both the food processing and polymer industries. In the food and beverage industry, they are added to food products to improve their shelf-life and stability by retaining moisture and preventing crystallization. They also consist of a cluster of versatile carbohydrates, which have a similar texture and taste to that of table sugar. They are used as a sugar replacement in low-calorie and sugar-free products, such as candy, chewing gum, ice cream, yogurt and fruit spread. In the polymer industry, they are utilized to manufacture polyurethane foams, coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers.
