Global Barium Nitrate Market Research (MRFR Insights)

The barium nitrate market size is projected to reach approximately USD 3513.6 million by 2030, at a CAGR of 4.8% from 2022 to 2030. Barium sulfide reacts with hydrochloric and nitric acids to produce barium nitrate. Due to barium's quick precipitation kinetics and low solubility in alkaline conditions, barium nitrate is widely employed in pyrotechnics and the manufacture of explosives like Baratol. Barium nitrate is also used to make barium carbonate, which is then extensively used in the ceramics industry as a flux and a glaze component. Barium nitrate is frequently employed in the assembly of ceramic and clay powder, a fundamental component utilized in the manufacture of various electronic equipment, including capacitors, superconductors, and semiconductors. As a result, the barium nitrate market size is driven by demand from end-use industries like the electrical and electronics industry, the defense industry, and others. For instance, On October 2022, The 6000 crore Sivakasi fireworks sector, which has primarily focused on green crackers, is now planning to enter the firecracker market, which Chinese competitors have hitherto dominated.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The barium nitrate market growth significantly declined during the Covid-19 pandemic due to the numerous limitations implemented after the widespread outbreak. Due to the social segregation conventions established by many nations worldwide, commerce activity, human migration, and other resource movements were largely constrained. This constrained market mobility negatively impacted the production, sales, and distribution of barium nitrate.

Barium Nitrate Market Dynamics

The worldwide pyrotechnics and explosives industry is anticipated to experience robust growth due to the barium nitrate market forecast. In the upcoming years, the segment's expansion will be supported by the growing development in pyrotechnics, which drives up demand for colorful explosives at weddings, festivals, and other important occasions. Additionally, over the anticipated timeframe, the industry's growth is predicted to be fueled by the expanding need for pyrotechnics in the defense sector.

Market Drivers

  • Growing demand in Glass/Ceramics industry

Since barium carbonate is primarily utilized in the production of ceramic powders and clay powder, which are then used in the production of ceramics and glass, there is a growing need for barium nitrate in the market. For instance, according to Ceramic World Web,  ceramics exports increased by 1.1% in 2019 compared to exports in 2018. Additionally, according to Glass Alliance Europe, glass production increased by 1.8% from the previous year to 37.2 million tonnes or 37.2 million metric tonnes. The worth of the entire glass and glass product manufacturing business in the U.S. was estimated by the Bureau of Economic Analysis to be US$3.83 trillion in 2020, an increase of 0.26% over the previous year's value. Barium carbonate is needed to make ceramic powders. Hence an increase in glass and ceramic production is driving demand for barium nitrate.

  • Increasing fireworks/pyrotechnics

  • Increasing military areas are emerging

Market Restraints:

  • Barium Nitrate's negative effects

Barium nitrate has several negative consequences on both the environment and the human body, some of which have the potential to be lethal. The chemical compound barium nitrate is completely soluble in water. Fireworks and other pyrotechnics are the main environmental sources of barium nitrate. This further exposes barium nitrate to the local air and water bodies. Moving up the food chain can further get into human bodies. These harmful chemical substances can affect a person's health in many ways, resulting in deadly diseases. This is one of the main obstacles preventing the market for barium nitrate from expanding.

Market Opportunities:

  • The rise in demand from the electronics sector

Consumer electronics use more optical materials like ceramics and glass due to the growing demand for and use of electronic gadgets, driving the use of semiconductors. Semiconductor Industry Association estimates that worldwide sales of semiconductors will rise 6.5% from the previous year to USD 439 billion in 2020. The market for optical materials is growing due the rising demand for consumer electronics throughout the anticipated time frame. For instance, the IBEF report estimates that India's consumer electronics market will be worth USD 145 billion by 2020, increasing demand for optical materials. This will boost the market's demand for barium nitrate.

Barium Nitrate Market Segmentation

Purity Insights

The barium nitrate market segmentation, based on purity, is <98%, 98% to 99.0% and >99%. The >99% segment had a major share in 2021. The purest form of barium nitrate, employed in several applications across numerous end-use sectors, has a purity level of at least 99%. Barium nitrate is used to produce special glasses and ceramics, explosives for the military, green fire in pyrotechnics, and other products with 99% and higher purity levels. Therefore, one of the important drivers driving the expansion of the >99% purity level segment in the barium nitrate market is the growth of such key end-use industries. Besides this, the 98% to 99.0% segment was the fastest-growing due to fireworks usage.

Application Insights

The barium nitrate market segmentation, based on application, is glass/ ceramics, fireworks, detonators, tracer bullets, vacuum tube production, explosives, primers, pyrotechnics and others. In 2021 the explosives segment had a major share in the market; the market was  driven by the rise in the production of explosives like baratol. Because barium nitrate has a high density and provides baratol its density of 2.5 g/cm3, it is favored for use in manufacturing this drug. Baratol is a detonator and explosive frequently utilized in the defense sector. The need for barium nitrate in the explosives business is rising due to demand from the defense and military industries. However, glass fabricating was the fastest growing due to the increased demand for ceramics.

End-User Insights

The barium nitrate market report segmentation, based on end-user, is optical industry, defense and military, and chemicals. In 2021, the optical industry segment held a prominent market share. Optical glasses are widely employed in many applications, including precision lenses, viewing windows, pressure sensors, laser systems, instrument windows, beam displacement, and others. The features of the glass, such as chemical resistance, water resistance, humidity tolerant, different densities, and optical properties, such as high refraction index, light protection, heat transmission, and absorbance, can be ascribed to the increase in demand for optical glasses. Glass components, primarily utilized in the optical industry, are produced using barium nitrate. Compared to other types of optic materials, glass optics can withstand harsh circumstances for longer. These benefits and qualities drive the market for glass optics, which in turn drives the demand from the optical industry for barium nitrate. Besides, the defense and military fuel were the fastest growing due to the demand for explosives.
