Isosorbide Market Trends




  • Rising environmental concerns are driving the market growth




Isosorbide generated from starch is a sustainable substitute for synthetic polymers. This factor is anticipated to have a beneficial impact on product demand. Increasing demand for bioplastics is projected to boost the market CAGR. The initiatives taken by the United States Department of Agriculture to encourage ecologically friendly products are projected to increase the overall demand for bioplastics. Government initiatives and regulatory support are likely to promote environmentally friendly chemical production. ly, epoxy resins made from Isosorbide are gaining appeal in the biomedical industry, medication delivery devices, bone cement, and coatings. In addition, isosorbide-produced polycarbonate has uses in the electronic, construction, security, and automotive industries. In Europe, for instance, Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) allows makers of bio-based/green products to create and promote environmentally sustainable bio-passed/green alternatives.


Additionally, isosorbide is made from plant feedstocks that can be renewed annually using a process that involves consecutive hydrolysis and hydrogenation steps. Hydrolysis turns plant starches into glucose, which is then transformed into sorbitol; the final step is the hydrogenation of sorbitol to Isosorbide. Over the past two decades, the production technology for Isosorbide has been optimized to reduce carbon footprint and maintain high levels of purity. To minimize waste emissions during the production of Isosorbide, producers in the sector are employing waste recycling strategies. In the next years, these advancements are anticipated to cut production costs and create growth prospects for manufacturers.


Moreover, the high cost of generating Isosorbide and biodegradable polymers is one of the primary impediments to market growth. Nonetheless, technological advancements and rising bioplastics expenditures are anticipated to drive market growth over the projection period. In addition, the adverse health effects of isosorbide derivatives are anticipated to impede the market's expansion. Thus, these factors drive the Isosorbide market revenue.
