Isosorbide Price Trend for the Second Half of 2023


The isosorbide price trends heavily depended on the market behavior of its feedstock material, sorbitol, during the second half of the year 2023. Since the prices for carbohydrate sources like corn and starch fell, the isosorbide market also wavered at the lower scale at the beginning of the third quarter.\

The first two months were a little more challenging as the situation started to improve marginally by the end of quarter three. This inclined journey then continued well into the fourth quarter as well, as the prices rose continuously in the last quarter. Even though the upward fluctuations were very limited, the market sentiments turned for the better by the end of the last quarter. Largely mixed market sentiments were witnessed.


Compared to the Asian markets, the European market’s performance was more underwhelming during the said span of the year 2023. The isosorbide prices tottered low during the third quarter because of a similar slide in the feedstock prices. However, here, the market could not make a comeback despite the balancing of feedstock prices as the demands remained unsupportive for the majority of the time. And whatever demands the downstream industries offered, the inventories were well capable of catering to that. Overall, a dull market trajectory was experienced.

North America

The isosorbide market behavior in the American markets showed a close resemblance with the European market as the prices were observed to be on a declining journey here as well. An unsatisfactory demand outlook was primarily responsible for the depreciation in the American isosorbide markets. There was some upstream cost pressure in the third quarter, but that couldn’t help the market situation much since the stocks were already piled up. Overall, a tepid trend was observed.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the Isosorbide price trend is expected to continue its bearish journey as the supplies are overwhelming, and the market demands are feeble.

Isosorbide Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


The market momentum of isosorbide was dictated by its feedstock sorbitol. The procurement rates of isosorbide in the first quarter of 2023 declined significantly as the sales of pharmaceutical industries took a slump. However, in the second half, the rise in market activities of the food and beverage industries helped in the revival of the isosorbide price trend.

The increasing cost of sugarcane and other feedstocks also supported the positive growth of the price trend. The second quarter failed to follow in the same steps as the first month. The reduction in the number of inquiries, high uncertainties in the economy, and hike in inflation rates led to the southwards movement of isosorbide prices.


The first quarter of 2023 suffered with an unstable trend shown by the feedstock and sugarcane sectors that hampered the growth of isosorbide prices. The second quarter followed the opposite trend, and the prices of isosorbide soared significantly during this time. The market momentum of isosorbide was supported by a higher number of orders from the downstream sectors, disruptions in the supply chains, and a slow and steady recovery of the economy, which all led to the rise in the prices of isosorbide.

North America

In North America, the demand from the pharmaceutical sectors and growth in sales of food and beverage sectors led to the rise in the prices of isosorbide in the first quarter of 2023. However, in the second quarter, the trend began to decline due to the downward direction of upstream industries. The cost of energy, economic slowdown, and fall of glucose and oil prices were some of the major factors that caused reluctance of the buyers while placing bulk orders, hampering the growth of the isosorbide price trend.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Isosorbide is expected to decline in the upcoming quarters as the rates of procurement from the downstream industries seem to be struggling amid weak global economic conditions.

Isosorbide Price Trend for the Second Half of 2022


The price trend for isosorbide depend on that of its feedstock glucose. The prices of glucose in the Asia-Pacific region were stable as the demand from the end-user industries was somewhat consistent.

The disruptions in manufacturing processes forced the producers to lower their profit slabs. In the fourth quarter, China imposed restrictions on trade activities as the covid cases surged in the region along with rising inflation leading to decreased consumers’ confidence in the market and thus resulting in the decline in the price trend of isosorbide.


Europe region was stable in terms of prices of isosorbide in the third quarter of 2022 while the market fluctuated in the fourth quarter. In the third quarter, the stable manufacturing costs and demand from the end-user industries kept the prices of isosorbide floating. However, in the fourth quarter, the trend was adversely affected by rising inflation and ample inventories. Along with this, the region also saw disturbed trade activities due to port congestion which in turn disrupted the whole supply chain. Thus, the prices of isosorbide fluctuated in the European region.

North America

The North American market was steady and stable in terms of demand and supply of isosorbide initially. However, during the end months of the third quarter and the entire fourth quarter, the price trend were affected by the low inquiries from the pharmaceutical sector. In the fourth quarter particularly, the prices took a hit due to rising inflation, logistical challenges, and the high cost of manufacturing. Along with this, the rise in transportation costs further fueled the declining trend in isosorbide prices.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend for isosorbide are expected to follow a downward trajectory due to the unstable trade atmosphere and the rise in inflation globally.
