Barium nitrate (BA), with the formula Ba (NO3)2, also known as nitric acid or barium salt, is an inorganic, odorless, and colorless crystalline toxic salt. It is a noncombustible compound that can speed up the burning process in combustible elements. It is obtained by reacting barium carbonate with nitric acid allowing any iron impurities to precipitate before filtering, evaporating, and crystallizing. It is extensively utilized as an oxidizer to generate fireworks and flares in green color. Owing to these properties, barium nitrate is widely utilized in fireworks, military usage, mining, electronics glasswork factories, metal alloys, construction, rodenticides, production of paints, ceramic glaze, optics, pyrotechnics, propellant, detonators, and tracer bullets.
The market is primarily driven by the increasing product adoption in the defense and security sector. In addition, the rising building and construction activities and the escalating demand for ceramic glaze, tiles, paints, and varnishes are contributing to the market growth. Moreover, the rising usage of ceramic powder in several electronic components such as superconductors, semiconductors, and capacitors as essential ingredients represents another major growth-inducing factor. Apart from this, the market is further propelled by the increasing usage of barium nitrate in the production of high-quality glass products such as optical glasses and camera lenses. It enhances the refractive index of glass in products where the oxygen component in barium nitrate keeps the glass clearer and free of discoloration for a long time. This, coupled with the increasing government expenditure on infrastructural development, is providing a positive thrust to market growth. Additionally, the growing advancement in pyrotechnics is escalating the demand for colorful explosives during weddings, festivals, and other auspicious occasions, which is anticipated to propel the market growth. Other factors, including the increasing research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players, the rising disposable income of consumers, and the improving living standards, are creating a positive market outlook across the globe.
