Naturally occurring sugar alcohol or polyol, Xylitol is found in most plant material such as fruits and vegetables. Currently, xylitol is commercially extracted from birch wood and corn cobs and many processes are in development stage to extract xylitol from other hemicellulose sources such as sugar cane bagasse. Xylitol is widely used as a sugar substitute and the interest in xylitol has increased considerably in recent years, due to many commercial applications in different markets such as food, dental related products, and pharmaceuticals.

Driven by increasingly health and weight conscious consumers, xylitol demand is expected to grow in sugar-free and low-calorie food products. Global market for xylitol is estimated at 161.5 thousand metric tons, valued at US$670 million in 2013 and expected to reach 242 thousand metric tons valued at just above US$1 billion by 2020, by growing at robust CAGRs of over 6% in terms of both volume and value. Chewing gum industry is projected to consume about 163 thousand metric tons by 2020 to remain the largest consumer of xylitol with 67% of global xylitol consumption. Estimated consumption of xylitol by chewing gum and confectionary was nearly 80% in 2010.
