Global Xylitol (Chewing Gum, Confectionary, Other Foods, Personal Care) Market - Forecasts to 2020

DUBLIN, IRELAND -- (Marketwired) -- 08/06/14 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/c4bwmp/xylitol_a) has announced the addition of the "Xylitol - A Global Market Overview" report to their offering.

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.

The study also analyzes the global alternative sweeteners market while exploring the Xylitol market with in-depth analysis of its end-use applications comprising Chewing Gum, Confectionary, Other Foods, Personal Care and Others. The analysis of alternative sweetener categories include High Intense Sweeteners - Saccharin, Aspartame, Cyclamate, Sucralose, Acesulfame-K, Neotame, Stevia and Others; and Polyols/Sugar Alcohols - Sorbitol, Mannitol, Maltitol, Xylitol, Erythritol, Lactitol and Isomalt. The global market data is illustrated in terms of both volume in metric tons and value in USD. A snapshot of the global competitive landscape is illustrated along with the installed and planned capacities of major manufacturers.This 293 pages global market report reviews, analyses and projects the Xylitol market for global and the regional markets including North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of World. The regional markets further analyzed for 15 independent countries across North America - The United States, Canada and Mexico; Europe - Germany, France, Italy, Spain, UK, Finland and Russia; Asia-Pacific - China, Japan, South Korea, Australia and India. The study includes 187 charts (includes a data table and graphical representation for each chart), supported with meaningful and easy to understand graphical presentation, of market numbers. This report profiles 19 major global players that are engaged in manufacturing of xylitol and also includes the companies which are planning to enter the fray.

Cloud resources, although available in abundance, are inherently volatile. For transactional computing, like ERP and most enterprise software, this is a challenge as transactional integrity and data fidelity is paramount – making it a challenge to create cloud native applications while relying on RDBMS.

In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Cliff Beek, President of Cloud Constellation Corporation, d...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...

Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost ...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in.
