The growing popularity of preservative food among consumers due to changing lifestyle is also increasing the demand for calcium propionate. Working People are busier with their work hours and consequently, their eating habits are changing day by day. These changing lifestyles are increasing the demand for longer self-life preservative foods. Similarly, bread is a staple food for various countries and it became very popular around the world in number of households in various countries. In the food & beverage industry role of food preservatives is becoming increasingly important. For example; in UK 99.8% of British households bought bread according to UK flour miller, this equivalent of nearly 11 million loves are sold each day.

In addition, calcium propionate is increasingly used in various sectors like pharmaceutical, health & personal care products, agriculture, animal feed, and poultry. In modern dairy, cattle production systems, the mycotoxins in feed and metabolic diseases, such as ketosis and milk fever, seriously affect the health and milk production of dairy cows. Calcium propionate is safe and reliable food and supplement. It can cause metabolism and is absorbed by humans and animals as a precursor to glucose synthesis. In addition, calcium propionate provides essential calcium to mammals. During the prenatal period of dairy cows, many cows impaired metabolism, endocrine and physiological changes, resulting in ketosis and fatty liver due to milk fever induced by negative energy balance (NEB) or hypocalcemia. On hot weather days, cow feed is susceptible to fungi, which produce mycotoxins. These two issues are closely related to dairy health and performance. For example; As per Integrated Sample Survey average annual productivity of cattle in India during 2019-20 is 1777 kg per animal per year as against the world average of 2699 kg per animal per year during 2019.

Moreover, in the pharmaceutical industry, calcium propionate is used as an antimicrobial agent.
