Overview of the Global Barium Market
Barium, an alkali earth metal, possess a high degree of chemical reactivity. The metal has numerous derivatives such as barium sulfate, barium chloride, barium oxide, barium nitrate, barium carbonate, and barium titanate. These derivatives are applied in a variety of operations, including but not limited to: Metal alloys, paints and varnishes, as drilling fluid in oil wells, plastics, inks, rubbers and vacuum tubes.
The barium market is poised to expand on account of heightened demand for alloys within different industrial applications. Alloys of various types are used extensively in the automotive industry where strength and durability of vehicles is paramount. Besides the automotive sector, barium is also widely used in manufacturing bearings, in the steel industry in steel deoxidizers, as well as in applications where creep resistance is desired. Varnishes and paints, which are widely required in the construction sector, also rely on the usage of barium and its derivatives. As many of these applications are currently in a phase of growth, the overall demand prospects for barium are expected to remain high.
In spite of the many growth drivers for the barium market, there are a few factors that will impede growth. The leading market restraint is the high reactivity of barium, which makes the metal difficult to use under several conditions. This, in fact, is the biggest deterrent to the use of barium and in view of this major restraints, consumers typically look for alternatives to the metal.
However, the offset the negative impact of these drivers, companies in the barium market can capitalize on emerging opportunities, such as the development of barium nanoparticles – a major step toward improving properties of certain polymers. Barium will also find newfangled applications in the X-ray imaging market and the coatings industry.
From the regional standpoint, North America was reported to be the largest consumer of barium in the world; it will continue to hold a predominant position in the barium market over the forecast period of this report. Factors that work in the favor of the barium market in North America are – the resurgence of the automobile industry and the strengthening steel industry. Trailing North America in the barium market is the Asia Pacific region, where an uptick in the demand for coatings and automobiles is being observed. In China especially, the intensified activities in the civil construction sector will augur well for the barium market.
