Market outlook: Potassium Metabisulfite
Potassium metabisulfite is a white crystalline powder possessing a sharp odor of sulfur dioxide. Potassium metabisulfite is commonly called as potassium pyrosulfite and used as an antioxidant, preserving agent and a chemical sterilant. The disulfite property makes it suitable for acting as a substitute for sodium metabisulfite. The breakdown of potassium metabisulfite gives potassium sulfite and sulfur dioxide due to its monoclinic crystal structure.
However, potassium metabisulfite is associated with some demerits such as difficulty in breathing along with reddening and irritation of skin upon constant exposure. Proper alkaline conditions are maintained while using potassium bisulfite, especially with acids to avoid the release of toxic gases.
Reasons for Covering Potassium Metabisulfite as a Title
Potassium metabisulfite is widely used in the food and beverage industry particularly in winemaking. The reaction of potassium metabisulfite to form sulfur dioxide during the process of winemaking helps in the protection of original taste and color of the wine. Potassium metabisulfite has also been used during stabilization of beverages to prevent the growth of microorganisms. It is also used for the preservation of pickles. Apart from the food and beverage industry potassium metabisulfite is also used in textiles, water filtration, and photographic chemicals industry.
Potassium metabisulfite is used in the textile industry for cotton printing and dying. It is also used for neutralizing the effects of chloramine added in the tap water as a disinfectant. The bleaching properties of potassium metabisulfite make it a useful bleaching agent especially for the production of coconut cream. Potassium Metabisulfite is also used as an alternative to sodium sulfite for precipitation of gold from the solution of aqua regia.
Though potassium metabisulfite has wide applications in many industries but is predominantly used in the beer and wine industry. R&D department of leading manufacturers are working to overcome the harmful effects of potassium metabisulfite for making it completely safe for consumption.

Potassium Metabisulfite Market: Region-wise Outlook
The consumption rate of beer and wine in the Polar region is generally high for maintaining body temperature during extreme conditions thus, increasing the demand for potassium bisulfite in these regions. The largest consumption of potassium metabisulfite has been reported in U.S., Turkey, Italy, and France due to the growing youth population and their dependence on beer and wine.
Asia-Pacific is also among the leading consumers for potassium metabisulfite due to the growth of food and beverage industries. The increasing demand for packed foods is also one of the reasons for propagating the growth of potassium metabisulfite market. The Middle East and Africa constitute a small proportion of the potassium metabisulfite market.
