Have a look at our PowerPoint Introduction and Brochure describing deliverables, differentiators and case studies. Eight case studies can also be reviewed.

Objective

The purpose of this study was to help our client understand the ‘market dynamics’ of the European and North American markets for erythritol in food and beverages.

The most important aspects of ‘market dynamics’ was to include the volumes, values, trends, players and competition, customers, key success factors and barriers to entry for the market.

Method

The study wasbased initially on sources available to CPL including in-house databases, an extensive network of contacts (the CPL Value-Net) and other publicly available information such as that obtained from patents and technical literature.

Additional information was sought from selected contacts within the industry and at conferences and exhibitions. These contacts included companies involved in the erythritol businesses: competitors, potential competitors and customers.
