    Market Highlights

    Potassium metabisulfite is a chemical compound with the formula K2S2O5. It is commonly used as a food preservative, antioxidant, and disinfectant. It is a white, crystalline powder that is soluble in water. Potassium metabisulfite releases sulfur dioxide (SO2) when it encounters water or acid. This property makes it effective as a preservative because sulfur dioxide inhibits the growth of bacteria, yeast, and fungi that can cause spoilage in food and beverages.

    The food and beverage industry is one of the primary consumers of potassium metabisulfite. As the global population continues to grow, the demand for processed and packaged food products is increasing. Consumers are becoming increasingly conscious of food safety and quality. Potassium metabisulfite is recognized as a safe and effective preservative that helps maintain the freshness, color, and flavor of food products. Potassium metabisulfite is extensively used in the winemaking and brewing industries. With the rising popularity of wine and beer consumption worldwide, the demand for potassium metabisulfite as a preservative and antioxidant in these beverages is increasing.  Overall, the potassium metabisulfite market is likely to rebound at a promising CAGR of 4% in the long run to reach USD 519.84 Million in 2028.
