Sodium Metabisulfite is a white or yellowish white inorganic compound that is composed of sodium, sulfur, and oxygen. Na2S2O5 is also known as Disodium or Sodium Pyro sulfite. The Sodium metabisulfite is readily soluble in water and glycerin. Primarily Sodium metabisulfite is used as a reducing agent, food preservative, and food additive. The characteristic use such as reducing agents, food preserving agents, sanitizing agent, Cleaning Agent, and others make Sodium metabisulfite a very useful substance which can be utilized in a diverse range of end-use sectors. The chemical and pharmaceutical industry uses Sodium metabisulfite as a strong reducing agent, an important element in numerous chemical and pharmaceutical processes. The food processing industry where Sodium metabisulfite is used as a preservative and food additive is another sector where huge growth lies for the Sodium metabisulfite market. The wide and increasing scope of end use application of Sodium Metabisulfite is encouraging the Sodium Metabisulfite market and its producers.
Sodium Metabisulfite Market: Drivers and Restraints
The global Sodium metabisulfite industry is driven by its growth in the consumption of the food and pharmaceutical industry. The rise in the consumption of packaged food products as preservative and additive is a major driver for the use of Sodium Metabisulfite Food Grade. The increasing demand for textile and wool, which uses Sodium metabisulfite as a bleaching agent is anticipated to promote the demand for Sodium metabisulfite. The rise in production and consumption of wine in the especially urban population where Sodium Metabisulfite is used is another driver for the Sodium Metabisulfite Market.
On the other hand, Sodium Metabisulfite Preservative can be used as an alternative to Sodium Metabisulfite. Sodium Metabisulfite possesses nearly similar physical and chemical characteristics as that of Sodium Metabisulfite. Hence the growth in the Sodium Sodium Metabisulfite Market is expected to hamper the growth of the Sodium Metabisulfite Market. The growing health concerns and growing demand for preservative free and fully organic food products are anticipated to lower the use of Sodium metabisulfite in the food and beverage industry.
