In Jan. 2013, CCM made predictions for some sweeteners, including erythritol, sucralose, stevia sweetener and HFCS. As revealed in these predictions, it is believed that erythritol’s potential market in China will be huge in the future; besides, domestic stevia sweetener producers should pay more attention to product research in the future, and only through that can domestic stevia sweetener industry keep its competitiveness in the world.

The export situation of HIS had a good performance in 2012. For example, the export volume and export value of Chinese cyclamate both increased in 2012.

As a key indicator for domestic HIS production, the increasing export volume means that domestic HIS industry also enjoyed a good performance in production.
