The Global Potassium Sorbate Powder Market Size is expected to grow at a CAGR of approximately around 5.3% during the forecast period.
The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for food-grade potassium sorbate powder from the food and beverage industry and the rising demand for pharma-grade potassium sorbate powder from the pharmaceutical industry. In addition, growing awareness about personal care products among consumers is also contributing to the growth of this market. Potassium Sorbate Powder is a food-grade preservative used to prevent mold, bacteria, and fungi growth in food products. It is a white, odorless, and tasteless powder that is soluble in water. It is often used in pickles, jams and jellies, sauces, condiments, and other foods to extend shelf life and prevent spoilage.
At larger concentrations, sorbates affect the taste of finished goods, which has an effect on market expansion. A further potential adverse effect is skin inflammation. Regulatory bodies thus established a maximum allowed level (200 ppm) for its usage in foods and drinks.
In the beverage business, where it is used as a stabilizer to prevent secondary fermentation and reinfection, as well as in the wine industry, where it is employed in the fermentation process, potassium sorbate is gaining favor.
