Synopsis of Barium Fluoride Market:
Barium fluoride, also known as BaF2, is a chemical compound found in the mineral frankdicksonite. It is obtained in solid form with a transparent property in nature. It is water-insoluble and used extensively in various applications such as IR optics, optics for astronomical instrumentation, space optics, and others. Moreover, it is known for extended IR transmittance, low refractive index, low dispersion, radiation resistance and these advantages are driving the market positively. Thus, they are used in various end-uses such as aluminum metallurgy, optical material, oil refining, spectroscopic components, pharmaceuticals, food, and others.
Among the various segments in barium fluoride market, the hydrogen fluoride segment is the leading application used and is anticipated to continue its dominance over the assessment period. It is extensively used as refrigerants, pharmaceutical intermediates, and fluoropolymers. Moreover, it is also widely consumed in metal manufacturing, glass etching & polishing, production of gasoline, stainless steel pickling, semi-conductor preparation, and various applications in the chemical and specialty metal production industries. It has been observed that the presence of carcinogenic content in the product and its impact on the environment is expected to hinder the market growth over the assessment period. The market by end-use is segregated into aluminum metallurgy, optical material, oil refining, spectroscopic components, pharmaceuticals, food, and others. The aluminum metallurgy segment holds a major portion of the market due to extensive use of the compound in enamel and glazing frits production, as flux and pacifying agent.
