By Geography - Segment Analysis

North America dominated the Potassium Sorbate Market with a share of 38% in 2019. The application of Potassium Sorbate has grown rapidly over the last few years as the consumers are shifting from processed food containing artificial and synthetic ingredients such as flavors, colorants, and preservatives to natural and organic food products owing to its health benefits continues to expand its market. The U.S. FDA has designated sorbates as a generally recognized as safe (GRAS) ingredient and approved its applications in dairy foods, bakery items, fruit and vegetable products, fat emulsion products, sugar and confectionery products and certain meat and fish items. However, at higher concentrations sorbates affects the flavor of finished products, which affects the market growth. Moreover, its possible side effect includes skin irritation.
