New thinking industry analysts said that menthol is widely used in food, medicine, daily chemical and other industries, and the demand is growing. L-menthol is the main product type. China's menthol industry is mainly produced by natural purification method with high product quality. It is a high-quality product in the global menthol market. However, the domestic output is limited. In addition to supplying domestic demand, it is also supplied to overseas markets. Therefore, the domestic market is in short supply, and the import of menthol is increasing. The menthol imported from China is mainly synthetic menthol. At this stage, the production capacity of synthetic menthol in China is weak, and there is a large space for the development of the industry in the future.
