Potassium metabisulfite is a food preservative, which preserves the natural color of food and protects food against bacteria. Winemakers also use potassium metabisulphite to preserve bottled wines. The manufacturing industry uses potassium metabisulphite as a dye and printing agent, in gold processing and in photography for developing.

Drivers: Growing Demand in the Food and Beverage Industry


Potassium pyrosulfite, also known as potassium metabisulfite, is a white crystalline powder with a strong odour. It has a monoclinic crystal structure, which results in the formation of potassium sulfite and sulphur dioxide upon decomposition.

Because of its antioxidant properties, potassium metabisulfite is increasingly being used as an additive in wine, which is driving up demand for potassium metabisulfite. During the winemaking process, potassium metabisulfite reacts to form sulphur dioxide, which helps to protect the wine's colour and delicate flavours.

In the brewing industry, potassium metabisulfite is used as a stabiliser to prevent the growth of bacteria and fungi. It is also added to tap water during the disinfection process to neutralise monochloramine.

Restraints: Availability of Substitutes


Availability of substitutes for potassium metabisulfite is one of the major restraints in the market.

Impact of COVID-19


Due to lockdown imposed around the world the factories generating chemicals were shut down which was a major hindrance. Lack of labour, no production had a negative impact on the market and eventually stopped the growth of the market.
