Erythritol industry in China to Keep Growing in the Future

Erythritol industry in China will keep on developing in the future, according to CCM’s Sweeterner China News.

Baolingbao Biology Co., Ltd. (Baolingbao), a leading Chinese producer of starch-based products and food ingredients, has been expanding its erythritol capacity, and the total capacity will reach 4,000t/a by the end of August 2011.

Baolingbao believes that the erythritol industry will develop well in the future and the demand for erythritol will also increase. Moreover, since the overseas consumption is more than the domestic one now, with the increasing overseas demand for erythritol, the domestic erythritol industry will keep on developing.

There were mainly five active erythritol producers in China by the end of 2010, with total capacity and output of 18,500t/a and 4,780 tonnes in 2010 respectively. The average operating rate of them is 25.84%, about 11% less than that of 2009. From 2006 to 2010, the capacity of erythritol had grown rapidly, while the growth of output had fallen behind. Besides, there were four producers, namely Zibo Zhongshi Green Biotech Co., Ltd., Shandong Futaste Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., Shandong Binzhou Sanyuan Biotechnology Co., Ltd., O'Laughlin Industries Co., Ltd., using glucose to produce erythritol in order to improve the production efficiency, while Baolingbao uses corn starch in its erythritol production, which is with lower cost compared with that of using glucose.

Moreover, in 2010, among the five main active erythritol producers, four are concentrated in Shandong Province; only one is located in Tianjin City. Because erythritol is a kind of sugar alcohol and the sugar alcohol industry develops well in Shandong, most of the erythritol producers choose to be located in Shandong.

All in all, it can be predicted that the erythritol industry in China will keep on developing in the future based on the facts above.
