Production of food is following an upward trend across the globe resulting in the higher consumption of sulfur chemicals for the preservation of food. Global sodium bisulphite market growth is robust in regions with increasing food production resulting from high population growth, with major growth regions being Africa, Central & South America, and Southeast Asia. In North America and Europe, food production is stagnating and consumption of sulfur chemicals is following this trend. Sodium bisulphite is used in food preservation and as a flavouring agent. Food-grade sodium bisulfate is used in a variety of food products, including beverages, sauces, dressings, and fillings.
Increasing global concerns of food supply chain such as damage during storage, delay in transportation, etc. has resulted in a greater significance in preserving food and consequently using preservatives as a way to prolong the shelf-life of food products. Hence, there is an increasing demand for sodium bisulphite is as a preservative. It is also used as a preservative agent in the photography and film industry which is in turn driving the global sodium bisulphite market growth.

The growing wastewater treatmentindustry is also anticipated to fuel the growth of global sodium bisulphite market along with the increasing concerns over wastewater complexities and government pressures have upturned the OEM’s towards the launching of higher technologies for wastewater treatment, thereby driving the demand for sodium bisulphite across the globe.
Sodium Bisulphite: Drivers & Restraints
The increasing demand sodium bisulphite in end-user industries across the globe is driving market growth of global sodium bisulphite market. Rising use of sodium bisulphite in the wastewater treatment is the major driving force for the global sodium bisulphite industry. The use of sodium bisulfite solution has increased for De-chlorination, consistent with developments in wastewater treatment and growth in population which is acting as one of the prominent driving factors for the global sodium bisulphite market.
The major restraint in the global sodium bisulphite market implies to be the availability of close substitute such as sodium metabisulphite. Also, another challenge to the industry is the adverse health effects from the use and exposure of sodium bisulphite. Also, it is regulated to be used in fresh produces that are intended to be served raw. This regulation is also expected to impose a challenge to the global sodium bisulphite market.
