Calcium Sulfite Market Insights and Forecast - 2027

Calcium sulfite is a chemical compound with the formula CaSO3.4(H2O). It is produced by the flue gas desulfurization method and occurs in two crystalline forms, namely, hemihydrate and tetrahydrate.  All forms of calcium sulfite appear as white in color. It is denoted as E226 by E reference value. It plays a very important role as an intermediate for production of gypsum and has a superior antioxidant property, which makes it suitable to be used as a food preservative for wine, canned fruit juices, packed foods, and vegetables. It being a strong reducer is used as food additive for different alcoholic products. Calcium sulfite is a major raw material in sulfite-kraft process in pulp and paper manufacturing. It is also is widely used in medicines for immobilizing casts and as a tablet excipient in its hemihydrate form.

COVID-19 Scenario Analysis

  • Owing to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, calcium sulfite industries have been hard hit due to demand and supply chain disruptions, decreased productivity rates, and health issues of workforce.
  • Decreased capital resources and potential global recession due to the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic restrain the demand for calcium sulfite for new market players.
  • Outbreak of COVID-19 has drastically impacted all industries across the globe. The calcium sulfite industry is among severely hit industries, owing to its dependence on China and other Asian markets.
  • Decreased productivity rates and imbalance between supply and demand of calcium sulfite may hike prices of calcium sulfite amid the COVID-19 period.
  • However, expansion of paper industries post COVID-19 scenario is expected to thrive growth of the calcium sulfite market.

Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends, drivers, and impact analysis

Rise in demand for packed food and beverage items where calcium sulfite is majorly used as a food preservative may thrive growth of the calcium sulfite market. In addition, increase in demand for paper where calcium sulfite is used as major raw material propels growth of the calcium sulfite market. Expansion of the pharmaceutical sector where calcium sulfite is used as immobilizing casts and as a tablet excipient may push the calcium sulfite market toward significant growth. However, SO2 emissions by flue gas during the production of calcium sulfite causes adverse effects on environment such as acid- rain, which hampers growth of the calcium sulfite market. Conversely, use of calcium sulfite in medical products such as Epi-pens, inhalers, and other new medicines and health care products is expected to create new opportunities for the calcium sulfite market in the future. In addition, expansion of infrastructure projects in developing countries such as China, India, and Afghanistan where calcium sulfite is used in the production of gypsum (a major constituent of cement) is also expected to create lucrative opportunities for the calcium sulfite market.
