Barium Derivatives Market 2018-2025 | Leading Vendors, Growth Challenges, Market Insights, Latest Trends and Segmentation

“Barium Derivatives Market”
Barium Derivatives Market by Type (Barium Carbonate, Barium Sulfate, Barium Chloride, Barium Nitrate, and others), by Applications (Construction, Metal Alloys, Mining, Explosives, Water Treatment, and others), by Region- Forecast till 2023

Market Scenario:

Barium is a highly reactive chemical element which is never found in its free form in the environment. Some barium derivatives can be easily synthesized on pilot or industrial scale, while some of them are naturally occurring, namely barium sulfate (barite) and barium carbonate (witherite).  Almost all barium derivatives are odorless, colorless and are found in crystal or granular form. Barite is a major source of barium derivatives such as barium chloride and many others.

Barite deposits are found majorly in North America and Asia Pacific. Applications of barium derivatives can be found in various sectors, including construction, metal alloys, mining, explosives, water treatment, and others. In construction they are used to make tiles, ceramic glaze, home decorative products and cement. Moreover, glass can be made out of the barium derivative namely barium carbonate. Barium derivatives are combined with steel and aluminum to form their alloys, which in turn used in automotive and other metal industries to make light and durable metals. Some of them are used in grenades, explosives and firecrackers. Barium derivatives also find their application in making drilling fluid to be utilized in mining. Increasing construction activities and growth of automotive industry are expected to be the drivers of growth in global barium derivative market.

There is an exponential demand of barium derivatives in building & construction industry. The growth of market is particularly driven by demand for making tiles and ceramic glaze. Paints & varnishes is an integral part of construction industry, which is also expected to push the demand in this industry. In addition, automotive industry is flourishing from past few years, where the use of alloys is indispensable. Apart from automotive, demand of alloys for various other industrial purposes would propel the demand of barium derivatives further. Globally, the scarcity of rare earth metals and other minerals necessitates exploration and mining activities, which may witness the demand for drilling fluids. China, India, U.S., Russia, and North Korea are expanding their military might and increasing the size of their arsenal. The growing trend of demonstration of military power by these countries may witness the rise of barium derivatives demand for making explosives. Established government policies in developed countries to mitigate water pollution can further fuel the global barium derivative market. Despite the steady growth drivers, global market is likely to be hampered by some key restraints, which includes increasing investment in R&D to develop new ecofriendly products. International and national organizations namely World Health Organization (WHO), US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE) are spreading the awareness regarding negative impacts of barium derivatives on vital human organs. Moreover, high reactivity rate of barium limits its use under normal circumstances. However, development of barium nanoparticles is expected to present new opportunities to industry players in coming years.


The global barium derivative market has been segmented on the basis of type, application and region. Based on types global barium derivative market is divided into barium carbonate, barium sulfate, barium chloride, barium nitrate, and others. Among them the growth of barium derivatives is majorly driven by barium carbonate owing to its demand by growing building & construction industry. On the basis of applications, global barium derivative market is segmented into constructionmetal alloys, mining, explosives, water treatment, and others, wherein the application of barium derivatives is expected to witness surge in demand from construction along with metal alloys in automotive sector. Geographically, global barium derivative market is divided into Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. During the forecast period Asia Pacific is estimated to be the leading region in the global barium derivatives market.
