Top Players in the Global Barium Carbonate Market

Top Players in the Global Barium Carbonate Market

The global barium carbonate market reached a value of US$ 577.9 Million in 2021. Barium carbonate or BaCO3­­ refers to a white solid that is precipitated from the solution of urea and barium hydroxide. It is toxic in nature and also occurs naturally in a mineral, called witherite. Barium carbonate is largely used in various industries, which include brick, ceramics, chemical, glass, oil-drilling, and photography. The convention method of producing barium carbonate includes high-temperature reduction of barite with coal, which generates a significant amount of carbon dioxide (CO2). At present, leading players in the market are investing in the development of more sustainable production processes. They are innovating by utilizing methane as a reducing agent, which considerable decreases CO2 emissions. As compared to the common coal-based methods, this method also offers various other benefits, including reducing residence time and lowering operating temperatures. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$872.2 Million by 2027, exhibiting at a CAGR of 6.9% during 2022-2027.
