Barium Nitrate Market is estimated to grow at a significant CAGR due to growing demand for Pyrotechnics during the Forecast Period :

Pune, India, March 12, 2018 /press release/- Market Research Future Published a Half Cooked Research Report on Global Barium Nitrate Market Research Report.

Market Overview:

Barium nitrate is a crystalline, inorganic salt of barium and nitrate ions. The thermal decomposition of barium nitrate takes place at around 500ºC-700ºC with the release of oxygen, barium oxide, and nitrogen dioxide. It naturally occurs in nitrobarite, which is a rare earth mineral. Commercially, barium nitrate is produced using following two processes. The first is to carry out the reaction of barium carbonate with nitric acid and then precipitating, evaporating, and filtering iron impurities. The second way to produce the compound involves the reaction of heated sodium nitrate solution with barium chloride, which results in barium nitrate crystals. It acts as an oxidizer and is widely consumed to produce green fireworks. It is mixed with thermite to form Themate-TH3, a military thermite grenade. It forms highly explosive flash powder when mixed with aluminum powder.

The barium nitrate finds its applications in pyrotechnics/fireworks, glass manufacturing, ceramic powder, detonators, tracer bullets, and vacuum tube production, among others. The global barium nitrate market is mainly driven by its growing use in the manufacturing of explosives used in defense and military industry. The increasing demand for the compound in electrical and electronics industries in manufacturing semiconductors, superconductors, and capacitors is anticipated to favor the market growth during the years to follow. Moreover, the growing demand for the product in manufacturing various types of glass such as optical, art, and crystal glass is likely to further fuel the market growth during the forecast period. However, there are some restraining factors operating in this market which are needed to be taken under consideration are the highly toxic nature of the product, which can be absorbed by aquatic animals due to its water-soluble nature and can eventually enter the food chain and its harmful effects on human health due to indigestion.
