Barium Carbonate Market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% by 2032

The global barium carbonate market is projected to expand at a firm 4.8% CAGR during the forecast period between 2022 and 2032 finds Future Market Insights (FMI) in a recent market analysis. Barium carbonate is an inorganic compound, which is usually white in color and insoluble in water. For Industrial usage, it is being manufactured from barium sulfide with the treatment of sodium carbonate, although it occurs naturally and is known as Witherite. It is one of the most important compounds of Barium.

Barium carbonate plays a vital role across diverse end-use industries such as construction, ceramics, electronics & others. In the manufacturing of tiles, bricks, and blocks it is used which is further utilized in the building & construction industry. The growing construction & building industry is expected to favor the growth of the barium carbonate market.

To prevent the scumming in tiles & bricks, barium carbonate is used. These tiles & bricks are extensively used in the construction industry hence growing construction activities are expected to increase the demand for barium carbonate. Apart from this, electronics & ceramics industry also uses the barium carbonate up to a certain extent. It is used in television glass, special glass, magnets, electrodes, enamels, and others.
