Sodium metabisulfite or sodium pyrosulfite (IUPAC spelling; Br. E. sodium metabisulphite or sodium pyrosulfite) is an inorganic compound of the chemical formula Na2S2O5. The substance is sometimes referred to as disodium metabisulfite. It is used as a disinfectant, antioxidant, and preservative agent.
In terms of downstream demand, industrial-grade sodium metabisulfite consumes the largest amount, followed by medical-grade sodium metabisulfite. 40% of industrial grade sodium metabisulfite is used in the production of sodium dithionite.
The main raw materials for the production of sodium metabisulfite are soda ash and sulfur. In China, there are many manufacturers of these two raw materials, which provide sufficient supply for the production of sodium metabisulfite.
The sodium metabisulfite industry is closely related to other industries in the national economy, thus pushing the industry forward. As the downstream demand of the industry continues to increase, the market for sodium metabisulfite has a very broad room for growth. In the next few years, with the rapid development of downstream industries, the sales scale of sodium metabisulfite is expected to rise steadily, approaching 2.3 billion yuan.
