Potassium Metabisulfite Market is forecast to reach $527.2 million by 2025, after growing at a CAGR of 3.9% during 2020-2025. With rise in the demand of additives in food and beverage industry particularly in winemaking, the potassium metabisulfite market is witnessing an increase in demand, as it is used as preservatives. Growing demand for wine and beer as a result of changing drinking preferences will further enhance the overall market demand for potassium metabisulfite during the forecast period. 

Potassium metabisulfite, K?S?O?, also known as potassium pyrosulfite, is a white crystalline solid with a pungent sulfur odour. The main use for the chemical is as an antioxidant or chemical sterilant. This prevents most wild microorganisms from growing, and it acts as a potent antioxidant, protecting both the color and delicate flavors of wine.

Report Coverage

The report: “Potassium Metabisulfite Market – Forecast (2020-2025)”, by IndustryARC, covers an in-depth analysis of the following segments of the Potassium Metabisulfite industry.

Key Takeaways

  • Europe dominates the potassium metabisulfite market owing to increasing demand of wine, beer, and food preservatives.
  • The growing usage of preservative in food and beverage industry to retain it natural color and taste, is likely to aid in the market growth of potassium metabisulfite.
  • Increasing demand of wine and beer due to changing drinking preferences across the globe will also increase the market demand for potassium metabisulfite in the near future.

Grade - Segment Analysis

Food grade segment held the largest share in the potassium metabisulfite market in 2019. Increasing usage of preservatives along with rising demand of food and beverages is anticipated to be the major driving factor for rising adoption of food grade potassium metabisulfite. Potassium metabisulfite is used as a preservative and antioxidant. It protects food from bacteria and retains its natural color. Because of its exceptional purity and quality, potassium metabisulfite is used for wine sulfurization where excellent taste is assured.

End-Use - Segment Analysis

Food and beverage sector has been the primary market for potassium metabisulfite for many years and is expected to register growth CAGR of 4.1% over the forecast period from 2020 to 2025. Due to changing drinking habits across the globe and increased demand of packaged foods, the consumption of potassium metabisulfite has always been considerably high in food and beverage industry in comparison to other end use. Growing consumption of food and beverages in APAC region is further enhancing the overall demand of potassium metabisulfite.

Geography - Segment Analysis

Europe dominated the potassium metabisulfite market with a share of more than 35%, followed by North America and APAC. Europe is the major producer and consumer of wine with more than 55% of consumption share. Southern Europe is home to the largest European wine markets. Such countries are distinguished by high production and consumption of domestic wine. Germany and the United Kingdom are the biggest wine markets in Western Europe, mainly because of their large populations. Alcohol consumption pattern is shifting toward APAC region due to increasing population, rising disposable income of middle class, and changing drinking preferences. This can create a huge opportunity for potassium metabisulfite market in APAC region.

Drivers – Potassium Metabisulfite Market

·         Increasing demand for preservatives in food and beverage industry

The rising demand of packaged foods and beverages has resulted in increased use of preservative to protect food against bacteria and conserves their natural color. This is likely to aid potassium metabisulfite market growth. Growing population along with changing eating and drinking preferences is expected to further enhance the food and beverage market growth which further increased demand of potassium metabisulfite as preservatives.

Challenges – Potassium Metabisulfite Market

·         Availability of substitutes

The major drawback for the potassium metasulfite market is availability of its alternative in the market place. Sodium metabisulfite and Campden tablets are some of the substitutes, posing a threat to the potassium metabisulfite growth in coming years. The main difference between sodium metabisulfite and potassium metabisulfite is that one leaves residual sodium levels in the wine and the other leaves some potassium. Both can be used interchangeably.

Market Landscape
