The Global Calcium Sulfite Market Size is projected to grow at a CAGR of 2.5% during the forecast period, reaching USD 1.6 billion by 2028 with food-grade being the fastest-growing segment in terms of value. With an increasing demand for the safe food and beverages industry, calcium sulfite is used as a preservative which can extend shelf life up to 12 months or more and prevent bacterial growth thereby reducing wastage cost in the food processing industry.
Calcium Sulfite is a white crystalline solid. It dissolves in water to form sodium bisulfate and calcium hydroxide, although the solubility of calcium sulfite decreases with an increase in temperature. It reacts violently when it comes into contact with strong reducing agents such as thiosulphates or halogens like chlorine gas, often resulting in vigorous reactions producing toxic gases that can cause fires if not handled properly.
On basis of Type, the market is segmented into Industrial Grade, Food Grade, and Others.
Industrial Grade Calcium Sulfite can be further divided into calcium sulfate (CaSO) or other inorganic additives such as sodium chloride (NaCl). As a by-product of fertilizers and pesticides, the Industrial grade is used for water treatment. In addition to being an additive agent for paper making process, it also acts as a surfactant for pulp produced from recycled materials. Calcium Sulphite is mainly used in paper mills where it helps break down lignin and allows more pulping chemicals to dissolve in the mix when cooking fibers. It reacts with copper ions at high temperatures which creates a chemical reaction that breaks down cellulose molecules.
Food Grade Calcium Sulfite is used as a preservative in the food and beverages industry. It can be mixed with salt, sugar, or other additives to create both sweet and sour flavors. Some of the most common industries that use Food Grade calcium sulfites are: tomato sauce & paste production, soy sauce manufacturing, fruit juices (orange juice), and beer brewing. The degree of usage varies depending on the type of business - for example, paper-making mills would largely depend on Industrial grade Calcium Sulphite while breweries will heavily rely on Food Grade products.
In addition to being an additive agent for the beer brewing process, it also acts as a surfactant which allows starch molecules from barley malt extract to dissolve more easily in water. The most common use of Calcium Sulphite is to prevent spoilage and bacterial growth in fresh produce such as vegetables, fruits, and so on. It can also be used for preserving seafood like crab or lobster.
Product type that falls under the Others includes natural grade sulfites which are produced from processing sulfur dioxide into calcium sulfite salts at high temperature (above 1213°F). These products serve a variety of food applications where other grades may not work well due to the strong flavor they impart onto them.
On basis of Application, the market is segmented into Food and Beverages Industry, Paper & Pulp Industry, Pharmaceuticals, Water Treatment, and Other. The food industry accounted for the highest share in the Global Calcium Sulfite Market which is attributed to high demand for preservatives such as sulfites from manufacturers of processed foods owing to its antimicrobial properties that inhibit the growth of bacteria on products like meat or fresh produce.
Calcium sulfites are also used in the paper & pulp industry as a preservative against fungal infections; they can be either sprayed onto the surface or mixed into the slurry. The most common application is calcium bisulfite which reacts with water to form sodium bisulfate and calcium hydroxide, although the solubility of calcium sulfite decreases with an increase in temperature. Calcium Sulfite reacts violently when it comes into contact with strong reducing agents such as thiosulphates or halogens like chlorine gas, often resulting in vigorous reactions producing toxic gases that can cause fires if not handled properly.
On the basis of Region, the market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. The North American market is set to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period due to the increased food and beverage industry. The Latin American market is set to have a moderate growth rate because of increasing production in paper & pulp, pharmaceuticals, and others industries.
The Asia Pacific market is projected to be largest by 2028 due to growing demand from countries such as China and India which produce more than half of the world's plastics. Europe will witness significant growth over the next six years owing to its stable economy and higher disposable income which will result in an increase in consumption levels for calcium sulfite products across different regional markets within Europe like France, Italy, Spain etcetera. Middle East & Africa are expected to maintain their share with modest growth rates throughout the forecast.
