US demand for alternative sweeteners is expected to advance 3.3 percent annually through 2015 to $1.4 billion. Gains will be led by relatively new entrants such as the stevia extract reb-A. The more mature products -- high intensity sweeteners (such as aspartame) and polyols (including sorbitol) -- will see more restrained, though still healthy, growth.
This study analyzes the $1.2 billion US alternative sweetener industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by product (e.g., aspartame, sucralose, saccharin, acesulfame potassium, neotame, sorbitol, mannitol, xylitol, stevia, agave nector) and market (e.g., food, beverages, personal care products, pharmaceuticals).
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 25 industry players, including NutraSweet, Tate & Lyle and Roquette Frères.
