Isosorbide is a bicyclic organic molecule formed by fusing two furan rings. It is a heterocyclic compound produced by the dehydration of sorbitol, a type of starch. Isosorbide belongs to the nitrate class of drugs and exerts its pharmacological effect by releasing free radical nitric oxide. It is widely used as a medication due to its vasodilator activity for managing angina pectoris in people with coronary artery disease. Isosorbide’s mononitrate and dinitrate derivatives find extensive applications in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries for treating achalasia, diffuse esophageal spasms, chronic angina pectoris, and recurrent variceal hemorrhage.
The global isosorbide market is primarily being driven by the increasing demand for bioplastics. Isosorbide-derived sustainable fibers are widely used to manufacture bioplastics that find extensive applications in textiles, consumer electronics, packaging, and sporting goods. Additionally, the rising demand for isosorbide as a renewable solution for diverse applications, including the synthesis of eco-friendly polymers, green solvents, surfactants, potential flame retardants, and novel organic catalysts, is providing an impetus to market growth. Moreover, continuous advancements in the production of the isosorbide, such as the introduction of two-step dehydrocyclization of sorbitol and the adoption of energy-efficient and environment-friendly methods using heterogeneous catalysts and ionic liquids, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. In line with this, the innovative utilization of isosorbide-derived resins, such as polycarbonate (PC), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polyurethane (PU), and epoxy to enhance thermal, optical, and mechanical properties as well as provide effective chemical and ultraviolet (UV) resistance to materials are positively impacting the market growth. In line with this, isosorbide is gaining traction in the biomedical field, drug delivery systems, and bone cement owing to its various beneficial properties, thus supporting the market growth. Other factors, including the rising compound application in transportation and manufacturing industries, increasing adoption of green and bio-based products goods, the implementation of stringent government regulations promoting the uptake of non-biodegradable substances, and the widespread utilization of isosorbide-based polycarbonate in manufacturing automobile elements, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
