Barium Sulphate Market Is Expected To See a growth of 4.9% | Future Market Insights

The global barium sulphate market is anticipated to grow to an estimated US$ 2,242.7 Mn in 2032 while exhibiting a standard CAGR of 4.9% over the forecast period of 2022 to 2032. Rising from an expected value of US$ 1,390.0 Mn in 2022, the barium sulphate market is likely to be driven by elevated demand for coatings and paintings. The demand for barium sulphate is further accelerated by the increasing application of lubricants.

An inorganic compound, barium sulphate is a white crystalline solid that is odorless and insoluble in water. It acts as a function filler and is superfine in nature while exhibiting a low absorption threshold. Owing to its inherent properties, there’s a notably high demand for barium sulphate in the pharmaceutical industry. This is due to the increasing application of polypropylene and polystyrene in pharmaceutical packaging materials. Pharmaceutical-grade barium sulphate is also used in a variety of diagnostic equipment which compounds the overall sales of barium sulphate.

Barium sulphate is generally used in crucial industries like rubber, plastic, leather, paper, paints, and coatings. With a growing demand for non-toxic products from these industries, a rise in the sales of non-toxic barium sulphate is likely to occur. Also, there’s an overall shifting consumer inclination toward plastic items which is supposed to further bolster the sales of barium sulphate. Besides, precipitated barium is an important part of the coatings industry. Therefore, many precipitated barium manufacturers are aiming for the coatings industry. As precipitated barium is a crucial ingredient in the rubber and coatings industries, the target market is expected to grow by leaps and bounds due to the advancing coatings and rubber industries. All of these factors are driving the global barium sulphate market over the forecast period.

“Increasing demand from the paints and coatings industry coupled with rising lubricant application is expected to bolster the sales of barium sulphate over the forecast period,” says an FMI analyst.
